Lawyer and District Councillor Daniel Wong Kwok-tung was released on bail from Sha Tin police station on Friday night following his arrest in connection with the Hong Kong 12.

Wong, along 10 others, were arrested early Thursday morning on suspicion of helping the 12 Hongkongers flee to Taiwan last August. He held in police custody for over 40 hours before being released on HK$10,000 bail. Police reserve the right to press charges later and he is required to report back to the police in March.
