Taiwan activists can't get HK visas
(06-25 11:17)

Three Taiwanese activists who led a campaign in March to occupy Taiwan's parliament say they've been denied a visa to visit Hong Kong.
Prominent student leader, Chen Wei Ting was to visit this weekend to show his support for Occupy Central's unofficial referendum on political reform.
He says his online visa application was rejected.
Lin Fei Fan and another activist also failed to obtain visas online.
On his Facebook page, Lin expressed regret and said he was puzzled over the denial.
The Hong Kong Immigration Department said it would not comment on individual cases. --RTHK
