Hong Kong: Joshua Wong pleads guilty in protest at trial | DW News

Hong Kong’s pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong pleaded guilty on Monday to all charges related to his involvement in protests that took place in June 2019. He was joined by two other known activists — Ivan Lam and Agnes Chow — who also pleaded guilty to charges against them. The activists face a maximum of five years in prison.

All three are being prosecuted over a protest that took place outside Hong Kong’s police headquarters in June 2019 when pro-democracy rallies rocked the city for seven consecutive months, often resulting in violence. The demonstrations were triggered by the introduction of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill by the Hong Kong government. Protests have abated since China introduced a controversial national security law in June. Despite his intention to plead guilty, Wong has little confidence in the judicial process ahead. "Courts in Hong Kong are being interfered with by the Beijing authorities, and the rule of law in Hong Kong exists in name only," Wong told DW, days before the start of his trial.
