Hong Kong online news platform Stand News dismissed all its staff and shut down on Wednesday after national security police arrested seven people for publishing seditious material and froze HK$61 million (US$7.8 million) of its assets.⁠

The outlet is the second in Hong Kong to face accusations of promoting seditious materials, after the now-defunct Apple Daily newspaper, whose owner Jimmy Lai Chee-ying and six senior employees were hit with new sedition charges on Tuesday.⁠

Police said Stand News had published a large amount of articles over the past 16 months that had stirred up hatred against the government and judiciary.⁠

Six were arrested at their homes at about 6am under a colonial-era law covering conspiracy to print or distribute seditious materials, police said in a statement, an offence punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of HK$5,000 (US$641) under the Crimes Ordinance.⁠
