Hong Kong: First person charged under national security law found guilty

The first person to be charged under Hong Kong's controversial national security law has been found guilty in a landmark ruling on Tuesday.

Tong Ying-kit was found guilty of inciting secession and terrorism after riding a motorbike into police officers and flying a flag calling for Hong Kong's "liberation".

More than 100 people have been arrested since the law came into force in 2019.

It reduces Hong Kong's autonomy and makes it easier to punish activists.

Beijing insists that the widely criticised law, which came after a series of mass pro-democracy protests in 2019, is needed to bring stability to the city.

Tuesday's verdict, which is the culmination of a 15-day trial, means Tong could face life in jail. His sentencing is due at a later date.

He was sentenced at a trial without jury - a departure from Hong Kong's common law tradition. The defence team had argued for a jury but Hong Kong's justice secretary argued that the jurors' safety would be put at risk given the city's sensitive political climate.

'Liberate Hong Kong'
The 24-year-old was arrested in July last year, after he rammed a motorcycle displaying a protest flag emblazoned with the phrase "liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times" into police officers.

During the sentencing, Justice Toh said the phrase was capable of inciting others to commit secession, local outlet HKFP reported.

Justice Toh had added that Tong understood the slogan carried a secessionist meaning - implying the separation of Hong Kong from the Chinese mainland.

They also found his failure to stop at police check lines and his eventual crashing into officers - was a "deliberate challenge mounted against police", local reports said.

"The defendant carried out those acts with a view to intimidating the public in order to pursue his political agenda," Justice Toh was quoted as saying.

the BBC's Grace Tsoi, who was at the court house when the verdict was delivered, said there were dozens of journalists and members of the public packed into the small courtroom.

There was "utter silence" when the verdict was read out to Tong, who appeared very calm and waved to supporters before being led out of the dock, our correspondent added.

The verdict sets the tone for how future cases under the law might be interpreted.
