“The organiser of an annual Tiananmen Square massacre vigil in Hong Kong has been arrested on its 32nd anniversary as police threatened to jail anyone who breaks into the park it is held in. Chow Hang Tung, 36, was arrested on Friday morning ahead of a candlelit vigil that was banned for a second year in a row as Beijing attempts to shut down pro-democracy activism in the city. … Police confirmed Ms Chow, a barrister, was arrested and reminded residents the event was banned, with a five-year maximum prison sentence for taking part in an illegal gathering. Ms Chow, vice-chair of Hong Kong Alliance, had urged people to commemorate the event privately by lighting a candle wherever they are. A 20-year-old food delivery man was also arrested for advertising and publicising an unauthorised assembly on his social media accounts, police said.” (06/04/21)
