Civic Passion chair and lawmaker Cheng Chung-tai has been arrested by Hong Kong police, amid a round-up of pro-democracy figures.
Since June, the police have arrested more than 900 people in relation to the ongoing anti-extradition law protests. The ill-fated bill would have allowed case-by-case fugitive transfers to China. Large-scale peaceful protests have morphed into – sometimes violent – displays of dissent over Beijing’s encroachment, democracy, alleged police brutality, surveillance and other community grievances.
HKFP has contacted the police for comment.
