by admin

Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong was jailed for four months on Tuesday for taking part in an unauthorised assembly and violating an anti-mask law during a demonstration in October 2019.

The 24-year-old Wong – who is currently just over four months into a separate 13.5-month jail term for organising and inciting an unauthorised assembly outside police headquarters in Wan Chai in June the same year – had pleaded guilty in January.

His co-accused, veteran pro-democracy protester, Koo Sze-yiu, who had pleaded not guilty, was convicted and jailed for five months . Koo had earlier completed a four-month prison term for desecrating the Chinese national flag in a separate case.
