Teenage activist Yanni Ho was released unconditionally by Hong Kong police on Monday six months after her initial arrest for “inciting secession” under the security law in July. Ho’s release marks the first time an individual arrested under the security law has been released unconditionally since the law’s promulgation last summer.

Ho, a former member of the pro-independence group Studentlocalism, was informed by the force that it will return her bail money and let her travel freely. “I! got! my! passport! back!” Ho wrote on her Facebook page. “[Officers] just told me that they will release me temporarily, meaning that I don’t have to report to the police regularly anymore.”

Police however told Ho they may re-arrest her at a later date. “But they said they can’t rule out that – when they gather enough evidence – they will arrest me again, lol,” her post read.
