Seven pro-democracy figures – including media tycoon Jimmy Lai and “father of democracy” Martin Lee – have been found guilty of organising and knowingly taking part in an unauthorised assembly.

They were among nine high profile activists who were accused of organising and taking part in the assembly against perceived abuses of police power in August 2019. Thousands of demonstrators gathered in Victoria Park in Causeway Bay and marched peacefully to Chater Road in Central.

Lai and Lee attended West Kowloon Magistrates’ Court on Thursday alongside veteran activist Lee Cheuk-yan, former Democratic Party chair Albert Ho, barrister Margaret Ng, activist “Long Hair” Leung Kwok-hung and ex-legislator Cyd Ho. All denied the charges.
