Top court refuses 'Long Hair' bail plea
(06-12 16:26)

Jailed League of Social Democrats lawmaker, Leung Kwok-hung, has been refused bail by the Court of Final Appeal.
His lawyer said that Mr Leung -- who's serving a one-month prison term for disorderly behavior and criminal damage -- intends to challenge both his convictions and sentence.
He argued that Mr Leung should be granted bail as he would have completed his sentence by the time the appeal is heard.
He also said that the Commissioner of Correctional Services would be asked to exercise his discretion to allow Mr Leung out of prison to attend various Legco meetings.--RTHK
