Hong Kong activist Andy Li remanded in custody following first court appearance over security law charge

by admin

Hong Kong activist Andy Li was remanded in custody on Wednesday after making his first public appearance in court since he was released from a Chinese prison last last month.

Li, who was charged under the security law for allegedly colluding with foreign powers, appeared at the West Kowloon Magistrates’ Courts on Wednesday. He was accused of asking foreign countries or organisations to impose sanctions – or take other hostile actions – against Hong Kong or China.
