Tanya Chan returns to battle

Central Station | 20 Jun 2019

Civic Party lawmaker Tanya Chan Suk-chong returned to the Legislative Council yesterday after an operation to remove a tumor on her brain.

She walked with a cane and was wearing a black dress with a white ribbon on the front, which was to pay tribute with other legislators to a protester who died after falling from the roof of Pacific Place in Admiralty where he was hanging a banner with a message against the fugitive extradition bill.

On her Facebook page, Chan wrote of "unreasonable violence" by police "to peaceful protesters" on June 12, and added that "today I must return to question the authorities and ask for clear responsibility."

Some people went on the page to applaud her efforts and wish her a full and speedy recovery after the operation last month.

She has been given a prison sentence of eight months for her involvement in the 2014 Occupy protests, but the sentence has been suspended for two years.
