Hong Kong police arrested four organizers of an annual Tiananmen Square vigil on Wednesday for refusing to cooperate with an investigation related to their alleged violations of the city’s national security law, the Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP) reported.
The Hong Kong Police Force confirmed on September 8 it had arrested three men and one woman for “not providing information” as requested according to the investigation. The police force did not identify the four individuals but said they were between the ages of 36 and 57 years old.
4 #ARRESTED on suspicion of breaking #NationalSecurityLaw—failing to submit info requested under the law to aid #HKPF’s probe. #HKSARG’s Security Bureau supports #LawEnforcement action taken after warnings being ‘ignored’—blatant disregard for #RuleOfLaw! More arrests may follow. https://t.co/KlAWjf6kMs pic.twitter.com/qy8t0MrzrF
