Observations on Next Digital (0282)
A Financial Inspector has not been appointed in HK since last century, before the SFC gained new powers under the SFO in 2003. Now, Financial Secretary Paul Chan, who will neither confirm nor deny plans to run for CE, is throwing this redundant tool at Next Digital. (28-Jul-2021)

Government freezes Jimmy Lai's assets, including stake in Next Digital (0282)NSL Rules
HK Government, 14-May-2021
Even if Mr Lai is convicted, given the advertising boycott against the company, the long decline in its share price, and that he's been supporting it with loans, it might be difficult for the prosecution to show that he has benefited from the offence and therefore that a confiscation should be made under the NSL Rules, Schedule 3.
Jimmy Lai returned to custody pending prosecution's appeal against bail
HK Court of Final Appeal, 31-Dec-2020
The top court cites prosecution's concern that Mr Lai may cause "irreparable harm to national security" while on bail, rendering the appeal nugatory, and chooses the "status quo ante" as the magistrate's decision to remand him in custody rather than the status quo before that, of being a free man.

SFC, 11-Sep-2020
Our rough translation: "The Police are off piste, out of their depth and we haven't heard from them". This comes a day after the Police conducted a press conference about the arrests without having charged anyone, alleging market manipulation.

We would add that investors should be aware that by buying shares in the market, they are not supporting the company, they are supporting those who are selling. Just saying.

Cashing up at Next Media
If Next Media (0282) completes the sale of its Taiwan units, it will have a profitable HK business and net cash of about HK$4.4bn with no use for it. Rather than drag shareholders into a new business as City Telecom (1137) has done, we expect Next to do the right thing and distribute the proceeds in a special dividend. The potential payout is $1.79 per share, and majority shareholder Jimmy Lai will get 74% of that to use as he pleases. (26-Oct-2012)
