They were on trial on charges related to the unauthorized vigil to remember the Tianamnen Square massacre


The outcome was that predicted by various human rights associations. One of the ongoing trials ended yesterday in Hong Kong for the unauthorized vigil in 2020 to commemorate the Tiananmen Square massacre, in Beijing, 1989. The media tycoon Jimmy Lai, 74 and owner of the Apple Daily newspaper forced to close by the local government, the pro-democracy activist lawyer Chow Hang Tung and the opposition leader Gwyneth Ho, a former journalist, were found guilty of a series of crimes related to the commemoration event. The penalties imposed have not yet been disclosed. Notably, according to Judge Amanda Woodcock, Jimmy Lay’s attendance at the wake conference presentation was a deliberate act to garner support and publicize the ensuing unauthorized assembly.
