A prominent Taiwanese political critic and a senior officer at a semi-official cultural group headed by Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen was refused entry to Hong Kong on Wednesday.

Chang Tieh-chih, also former chief editor of Hong Kong’s popular lifestyle and cultural monthly City Magazine, broke the news on Wednesday afternoon with a message on his Twitter account: “Finally, I was denied entry at the Hong Kong airport.”
