Ex-chairman for the Democratic Party Wu Chi-wai has been accused of breaching bail conditions linked to his unauthorised assembly case, after the democrat’s British National (Overseas) passport was allegedly found when police arrested him under the national security law on Wednesday.

The ex-lawmaker – detained since Wednesday morning for committing “subversion” under the Beijing-enacted security legislation – was transferred to the West Kowloon Magistrates’ Court directly from the Wong Tai Sin Police Station on Thursday.

The prosecution accused Wu of having failed to surrender all of his travel documents, which was required when the court released him on bail at a hearing on December 17. Prosecutors asked the court to revoke his bail and magistrate Peter Law adjourned the case to Friday morning. The leading opposition figure will be detained at a Correctional Services facility in the meantime.
