Leung Chun-ying (CY), the forth Chief Executive of Hong Kong was elected by 1200 election committees on March 25, 2012. He is alleged as underground communist party member and violated freedom of speech in the past. A famous Hong Kong blogger Kay Lam’s Facebook account was suspended after posting a picture with caption “Finally the lights are all gone, The Death of Hong Kong 1841-2012”, just three hours after CY was elected as Chief Executive.
In the early April, Gao Yingpu, an editor-in-chief in Chongqing Chinese BusinessTimes, was taken away by police from his home in the morning, July 2010. He was sentenced for "crimes against national security" for three years, and was due to his criticism toward Chongqing’s authority on personal online diary. The news was released after he has been imprisoned for one and a half years.
