Three on trial over LegCo storming
(07-22 14:59)

Three protesters, who stormed into the Legislative Council building during a meeting of the Council's Finance Committee last month, have appeared in Eastern Court.
Civic Passion founder Wong Yeung-tat and activist Cheung Kwai-choi are accused of unlawful assembly and other related charges, but were not asked to enter a plea.
But the third defendant, Chan Nin, pleaded not guilty to a charge of assaulting a police officer.
The offenses were allegedly committed while the Committee was dealing with a government request for initial funding to build two new towns in northeast New Territories.
The case was adjourned until September 2nd. --RTHK
