All but one of the former opposition legislators and activists detained during a mass raid on suspicion of subversion under the national security law have been released on bail, Hong Kong police confirmed Friday.

Former Democratic Party leader Wu Chi-wai, one of a group of 53 arrested early Wednesday in an operation which sparked international condemnation, remains in custody. Activists Joshua Wong and Tam Tak-chi, who are already in custody, were arrested separately under the law in a prison and a detention centre respectively.

Critics have described the swoop by almost 1,000 police as an attempt to stifle democratic voices in the city. Those detained are accused over their involvement in primary elections organised by the opposition last July to select candidates for an upcoming Legislative Council election, which was later postponed for a year.
