Tomorrow, May 14, West Kowloon Magistrates' Court: 95 on trial for 'riot' at #GlobalAntiTotalitarianism march on Sept 29. The trial's so big, it's in 2 batches: 9:30am & 2:30pm. This was the biggest trial in #HK history 'til superseded by 242 on trial for riot for Nov 18 protest.
The 95 were brought straight from jail Sept 29 to court Oct 2 & charged w 'riot' tho prosecution'd gathered no evidence on individual defendants.Many were originally told they'd be charged w 'unlawful assembly' but then DeptOfJustice/police arbitrarily decided to declare a 'riot'
There have been 2 hearings, in Oct & Dec. 7mo on, we're not even at the plea stage of the trial yet & I've heard pleas won't be taken tomorrow either. Defense counsels have received no evidence yet from prosecution against their clients.
