Democrats arrested in mass security law roundup told to report to police five weeks early, some expect to be charged

Many of the 55 democratic politicians or activists arrested in January under Hong Kong’s national security law have been told to report back to police on Sunday, five weeks earlier than scheduled, and some say they expect to be charged.

They said on Facebook they were told to report to police stations at 2pm on Sunday, following their arrest over opposition primary elections held last July and release on bail.

Of those held in January in a mass roundup, 53 were detained at their homes in raids which sparked widespread international criticism, while two were arrested while already in custody for other alleged offences.
