On Wednesday evening, police arrested four former members of the pro-independence group Studentlocalism on suspicion of inciting secession in the first major roundup of activists under the new national security law.

Officers from the newly-established National Security Department detained three males and one female, aged 16-21, including 19-year-old ex-convenor Tony Chung, ex-spokesperson Ho Nok-hang, as well as ex-members Yanni Ho and Chan Wai-jin, according to local media. All have been denied bail.
