A student journalist for the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Students’ Union Editorial Board has been charged with obstructing police and resisting arrest, after he was apprehended during a protest at a luxury mall in Hong Kong in May.

The editorial board said on Wednesday that its former reporter Nelson Tang was officially charged by police on Tuesday night. The charges were linked to Tang’s arrest in Central’s IFC Mall on May 8, where dozens of people gathered to take part in a pro-democracy sing-along during lunchtime.

Protesters chanted slogans including “Hong Kong independence, the only way out” and sang Glory to Hong Kong – the unofficial anthem of last year’s anti-extradition bill movement. Police warned demonstrators to disperse, citing a violation of the coronavirus public gathering restrictions. Officers later used pepper spray to break up the crowds.
