    China's Weibo bans co-founder who questioned zero-COVID strategy

    A leading entrepreneur in China who had questioned the wisdom of the country's zero-COVID strategy was banned from posting on Weibo, with the social media platform accusing co-founder James Liang of violating laws. Weibo, a platform similar to Twitter, did not specify which laws Liang had broken, and it was unclear when the ban took effect or what had triggered it. The account belonging to Liang, who is also executive chairman of China's dominant travel platform, now displays a statement saying the user is currently blocked for "violating relevant laws and regulations".
