Murder suspect Chan Tong-kai, whose case sparked the wave of protests against the extradition bill in Hong Kong, was released from the Pik Uk prison in Sai Kung on Thursday.
Tong-kai, 20 years old, was released upon serving a 18-month sentence for money laundering activities, reports say.
He reportedly told journalists outside the prison that he is willing to turn himself in to the authorities... Еще in Taiwan, where he is wanted for killing his girlfriend last February.
Tong-kai fled from Taiwan to Hong Kong, where he is a permanent resident. His case prompted the introduction of the extradition bill, which caused massive anti-government protests.
