Three activists admit trespassing at PLA base
(05-19 17:58)

Three of the four activists charged with trespassing at the People's Liberation Army base in Tamar have pleaded guilty in Eastern Court.
Cheung Hon-yin, Tse Wing-man and a 15-year-old student, who cannot be named for legal reasons, previously denied at a pre-trial hearing that they had entered the closed area without a permit.
Only the other defendant, Chiu Hin-chung, pleaded not guilty this time.
The case was adjourned to allow the prosecution to prepare documents.
The start of the hearing was delayed due to Chiu's late arrival. Chiu's lawyer told the court that his client had overslept, and he could not be contacted because his mobile phone had been cut off for non-payment.
But magistrate So Wai-tak said oversleeping was not an excuse and his late arrival had wasted public money. He ordered the confiscation of Chiu's HK$500 bail. --RTHK
