2 men arrested for seditious acts

June 23, 2022

Police’s National Security Department today arrested two men, aged 28 and 30, in Wong Tai Sin and Yuen Long, for doing an act or acts with seditious intention, contravening Section 9 and 10 of the Crimes Ordinance.


Investigations revealed that the pair were suspected of publishing posts on social platforms to disseminate seditious messages that promote feelings of ill-will and enmity between different classes of the Hong Kong population and incite the use of violence.


Police also seized some electronic communication devices used to publish seditious messages at both men’s residences when conducting searches there with a court warrant.


The department laid holding charges against the two men, each with one count of doing an act or acts with seditious intention in the evening.


The case will be mentioned at the West Kowloon Magistrates’ Courts tomorrow morning.
