Hong Kong Tiananmen vigil organisers convicted under national security law

THREE former organisers of Hong Kong’s annual vigil to commemorate Beijing’s deadly Tiananmen crackdown were found guilty today for refusing to submit information to national security police.

The candlelight vigil was banned by authorities in 2020, weeks before Beijing imposed a sweeping national security law to stamp out political dissent in Hong Kong following large-scale and sometimes violent pro-democracy protests a year earlier.
