Hong Kong Arrests First Person Under Updated Security Law
Hong Kong on July 6, arrested 23-year-old Tong Ying-kit on the grounds of terrorism and inciting secession, under its new security law, which deems such activities illegal. Shouting slogans or holding up banners is also considered a violation of the new law. Ying-kit had allegedly wounded three policemen after ramming a motorbike on them last week, and was found carrying a “Liberate Hong Kong” banner. He has been denied bail.
