Ray Wong bail extended; protesters demand stronger punishment

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Dozens of people protested outside Kowloon City Court today, calling for a heavy sentence for the leader of the localist group, Hong Kong Indigenous.

They accused him of engaging in violent activities.

This came after Ray Wong Toi-yeung made a second appearance on a charge of rioting during the clashes in Mong Kok last month.

No plea was taken and the case was adjourned until May 10. Wong's bail was extended.

But Principal Magistrate, Peter Law, granted Wong special permission to be away from Hong Kong between April 26 and May 5 to attend a youth forum in India. When he made his first court appearance last month, Wong was ordered to surrender his travel documents.—RTHK
