Wix, an Israel-based web hosting site, pulled down the Hong Kong democracy website from its servers as the financial hub’s police of china asked them to take it down. This removal is the first case of the new national security law wherein the law demands that all overseas websites censor the content.
A former student leader of the Hong Kong legislator, Mr. Nathan Law, who stays in Britain these days, went to Twitter and tweeted, saying that the website which has been set up by the Chinese activists living overseas, has been brought down by six.
Mr. Nathan law then shared the letter written by the Hong Kong police, wherein it demanded that Wix should pull down the website as the national security is being engendered. It also warned that the employees of Wix will be faced with imprisonment and a fine if they refuse to comply with the letter.
The website was taken down on Monday and then was restored right after Mr. Nathan’s tweet following that a spokesperson of Wix wrote sent an email which stated that the website was removed by mistake. They are looking into this matter and reviewing their screening process so that errors like these don’t happen again.
