More prison sentences for pro-democrats in Hong Kong
The political purge in Hong Kong continues. On Tuesday, a court sentenced nine activists and former politicians to prison terms of up to ten months. The pro-democracy defendants were punished for organizing and participating in a vigil for the victims of June 4, 1989. The event last year had taken place in Hong Kong's Victoria Park despite a ban. The authorities had officially banned the memorial service because of the Covid pandemic.
