First person charged under HK security law found guilty of terrorism, instigating secession

HONG KONG – The first person charged under Hong Kong’s national security law was found guilty on Tuesday of terrorism and inciting secession in a landmark case. It is also gauged to have long-term implications for how the legislation reshapes the city’s common law traditions.

An alternative charge of dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm was not considered.

Former waiter Tong Ying-kit, 24, was accused of driving his motorcycle into three riot police while carrying a flag with the protest slogan “Liberate Hong Kong. Revolution of our times,” which prosecutors said was secessionist.
