Detained reporter Ching can’t get lawyer yet – Gary Cheung

From the South China Morning Post, via Asia Media:

Mainland authorities have rejected an application by the family of Hong Kong journalist Ching Cheong to seek legal representation for him, on the grounds that his case is still under investigation.

Ching’s journalist wife, Mary Lau Man-yee, said she received a notice from the State Security Bureau in Beijing last Friday that her husband, who is accused of spying for Taiwan, would not be allowed to appoint a lawyer for the time being.
