Hong Kong: 9 activists sentenced for Tiananmen vigil

BEIJING, SEPTEMBER 15 – Nine pro-democracy activists from Hong Kong were sentenced to sentences of between six and 10 months in prison for having promoted and participated in the vigil on June 4 in memory of the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre, which was banned for the first time once by the police since 1990. Three others were convicted but benefited from the same sentence of joining an illegal assembly or inciting others to attend. All of them, already on 9 September, had pleaded guilty to the accusations of incitement and participation in an unauthorized demonstration in view of a softer sentence. (HANDLE).
