Alliance says police arresting key members

The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China says police arrived at the homes and offices of its key members early on Wednesday to make arrests after it refused to hand over information requested by the force’s national security unit.

Its vice-chairwoman, Chow Hang-tung, wrote on social media shortly after 6.30am that police were at her door.

The group delivered a letter to the force on Tuesday explaining why it had declined to hand over the information on its finances and operations and rejecting accusations it was a “foreign agent”.

Security Secretary Chris Tang warned on Tuesday that law enforcers would act quickly against anyone who refused a request for information.
