Police call on Civic Passion founder
(06-12 10:44)

The founder of activist group Civic Passion, Wong Yeung-tat, says police called at his home on Thursday morning and took him to Sham Shui Po police station.
He says they were investigating last Friday's rowdy protest at the Legislative Council building, when protesters broke through security lines and stormed into the lobby area.
The demonstrators were protesting against government plans to build two new towns at the north-eastern New Territories. Yeung says he only showed his support for the protesters and he didn't storm the building. --RTHK
