January 23: Hello from Latin America

Hello from Latin America where this month I have visited the families of prisoners in Hong Kong and done publicity about the danger of drug trafficking to Hong Kong.

I have been to nine countries: Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Suriname, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil and I am due to return to Hong Kong on January 26.

There are about 140 drug mules from Latin America in detention in Hong Kong. I am hoping my visit will help reduce the number from Latin America in the future.

In every one of the nine countries, local media have published reports about my anti-drug campaign. For example a long report in Spanish by the number one newspaper in Paraguay can be accessed here: http://www.abc.com.py/nacionales/campana-no-mas-mulas-paraguayos-presos-en-hong-kong-1666427.html
