Activists plan to refuse to renew their bail
(07-30 18:59)

Sixteen activists who were arrested for taking part in a peaceful, but unauthorized overnight sit-in in Central following the July-first rally, say they'll refuse to have their bail extended when they report back to the police later this week.
They say they will demand to either be charged immediately; or released unconditionally. One of the activists, Civil Human Rights Front convener, Johnson Yeung, said they would rather face prosecution than allow the police to abuse the bail system to stop them from taking part in future protests.
Of over 500 people who were arrested after police cleared Chater Road on the morning of July 2nd, 25 were released on bail - including organizers of the July 1st march and student leaders.
No charges have been laid against anyone so far. --RTHK
