Lam Wing-kee (Chinese: ) 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.[1] When asked whether he can see that the government of Hong Kong has protected them (""), he replied "No".[2]

His position/view on Hong Kong independence is ambiguous.[3] 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? (",,,,,,"[4])

In April 2019 Lam moved to Taiwan in response to the proposed Hong Kong extradition bill.[5]
