Hundreds of protesters, many wearing face masks despite an ongoing ban, gathered outside the Hong Kong High Court on Wednesday, to show support to jailed activist Edward Leung. Leung appeared in court to appeal against his six year sentence for the Mong Kok riots in 2016.
Footage from outside the High Court show hundreds of young protesters wearing face masks, holding banners and chanting for... Еще Leung's release as the police van carrying him enters the building. Some are seen holding his picture and displaying messages on mobile phones. Dozens of police personnel are seen keeping the crowds away as Leung left after his court appearance.
After hearing arguments from both sides, a three-judge panel adjourned and said they would rule at a later date.
