BREAKING: Hong Kong Tiananmen Massacre vigil group ex-leader convicted over 2021 banned rally


A former leader of the now-defunct organiser of Hong Kong’s annual Tiananmen Massacre vigils has been found guilty of inciting others to take part in last year’s banned rally.

Former vice-chair of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China and barrister Chow Hang-tung was convicted on Tuesday by magistrate Amy Chan at the West Kowloon Magistrates’ Courts.

The 36-year-old was found guilty of inciting others to take part in an unauthorised assembly, after the police banned last year’s Tiananmen Massacre commemoration for the second year in a row, citing Covid-19 health concerns.
