Lam wearing a blue cap
Lam Wing-kee (Chinese: 林榮基) is the former owner and current manager of Causeway Bay Books, a Hong Kong bookshop most well known for its provision of politically-related publications. Lam was detained by non-Hong Kong Disciplined Services in October 2015 as part of the disappearances of several bookshop owners; the Central Case Examination Group let him go to Hong Kong in June 2016 to fetch information. When asked whether he can see that the government of Hong Kong has protected them ("見不見到特區政府有保護過你們"), he replied "No".
His position/view on Hong Kong independence is ambiguous. In a Canadian interview, he said
Freedom is not all-powerful, freedom is always relative. You have the freedom of expression of course, but there is also a restriction. For instance, you like to sing at night while the neighbor is sleeping causing disturbance, then has your freedom affected others? ("自由不是萬能，自由永遠是相對。當然你有表達的自由，但都是有規限，譬如夜晚你喜歡唱歌，隔壁人家睡覺，你吵到人家，如此你的自由是否影響到人家呢？")
In April 2019 Lam moved to Taiwan in response to the proposed Hong Kong extradition bill.
