Bail-jumping claim condemned

December 4, 2023

The National Security Department of the Hong Kong Police Force said today it had taken note of a women’s claim on social media to have jumped bail. It strongly condemned her actions, which it said were irresponsible and against the rule of law. 

On August 10, 2020, the woman was arrested over suspected collusion with external elements. From late 2020 to mid-2021, she was sentenced to imprisonment for other offences.

On being released on bail, she was restricted by Police from leaving Hong Kong according to Schedule 2, Article 43 of the National Security Law. Police said she had reported punctually and co-operatively.

After she told Police that she wished to study abroad, and provided admission documents as a proof, they returned her travel documents and extended her bail until December.

Police urged the woman to immediately turn back and not to choose a path of no return, adding that she would otherwise bear the stigma of a fugitive.
