U.S. 'dismayed' by HSBC's reported actions over Hong Kong accounts -statement

Wed, 26th Aug 2020 11:36

WASHINGTON, Aug 26 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike
Pompeo on Wednesday said the United States was "dismayed" by
British bank HSBC's reported actions toward certain
Hong Kong-related accounts, including those linked to
pro-democracy publisher Next Media, and said China was
"bullying" the United Kingdom.

Pompeo, in a statement, cited reports of Hong Kong-based
executives at Next Media being unable from accessing their HSBC
bank accounts and said the bank was "maintaining accounts for
individuals who have been sanctioned for denying freedom for
Hong Kongers, while shutting accounts for those seeking
freedom."
