Student activists remanded in national security case

Three student activists charged with violating the national security law were on Tuesday remanded in custody by the West Kowloon Court.

Wong Yat-chin, the convenor of the group Student Politicism, and former members Chan Chi-sum and Jessica Chu are accused of conspiracy to incite subversion. Authorities alleged that the trio, aged between 18 and 20, committed the offence between last October and June this year.

Principal magistrate Don So rejected bail applications from their lawyers.

The case was adjourned until November 3, pending transfer to the District Court.
