As many of you know, our colleague Prof. Chan Kin-man was convicted in Hong Kong for exercising his constitutional rights and undertaking non-violent advocacy and civil disobedience as a leader in the 2014 Hong Kong protests. He has now been sentenced to imprisonment for sixteen months and ordered to be imprisoned immediately. A number of others were also convicted and sentenced, as the articles below indicate.
