TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – T.C. Chang (張鐵志), a prominent Taiwanese cultural official and
social commentator, said Wednesday he had been refused entry to Hong Kong.
Chang spent several years living and working in the Chinese Special Administrative Region, is married to a Hong Kong woman, and now serves as deputy secretary general of the Taipei-based General Association of Chinese Culture (GACC, 文化總會).
He was scheduled to attend a four-city cultural forum in Hong Kong on Wednesday, but immigration refused to let him in, while they let his wife enter the territory.
“At last, I’ve been refused entry at Hong Kong Airport,” Chang tweeted. He reportedly received no reason why, with officials telling him his Hong Kong residency permit had expired. Chang returned to Taiwan later in the day. [FULL STORY]
