A court in Hong Kong has found seven prominent pro-democracy politicians and campaigners guilty of organising and taking part in an unauthorised assembly for their role in a peaceful protest that was one of the biggest rallies in the Chinese-controlled city in 2019.
Those convicted on Thursday include media tycoon Jimmy Lai, as well as 82-year-old Martin Lee, who helped launch the city’s largest opposition Democratic Party in the 1990s and is often called the former British colony’s “father of democracy”.
