Henny
there was some info on Human Rights Watch (around Olympics time); plus info
about control of access, ie: denying access rather than granting it to all -
google picked up both pieces i had remembered reading at the time
http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=human+rights+watch+access+china&btnG=Search&meta=.

Hong Kong has policies regarding accessibility - have a look at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/Policy/#HK

Kind regards
Harry
