China detains three mainlanders over Hong Kong protest activity – state media

by admin

Agents from China’s state security have detained three mainlanders over the past two years for their involvement in the 2019 Hong Kong protests, according to Chinese state media.

Two of the individuals reportedly studied in Hong Kong universities, while the third was a student intern at a western media outlet in Beijing, the Global Times and Legal Daily both reported. So far, HKFP has been unable to independently verify the reports, nor determine if any of the trio were picked up outside the mainland. The gender of the three individuals is also unknown.

The cases were revealed on Thursday, a day after the ‘confessions’ of a mainland businessman accused of financing the protests were broadcast on CCTV. The reports said this brought to four the number of national security cases related to the city’s protests so far unveiled by state security authorities for the occasion of National Security Education Day.
