#HongKong lawmakers Jeremy Tam and Au Nok-hin arrested, as police continue round-up of democrats hongkongfp.com/2019/08/30/bre…
Pro-democracy lawmakers Jeremy Tam and Au Nok-hin were arrested on Friday evening – the latest of the high-profile pro-democracy activists to be rounded up by Hong Kong police.
Au was arrested for assaulting & obstructing a police officer on July 8, police said. Tam was also arrested on Friday for obstructing a police officer. Both lawmakers were present in Mong Kok on July 8, after a massive anti-extradition bill protest that took place the day before.
After the peaceful march ended at the West Kowloon high-speed rail station, some protesters took over the streets in Tsim Sha Tsui & walked along Nathan Road to Mong Kok. Several democrats, including Au and Tam, were on the scene as riot police sought to clear Nathan Road.
News footage at the time showed a heated discussion between the lawmakers and police.
