Mr Bag­gio was flanked by other pro-democ­racy law­mak­ers who pushed and shoved against at least five se­cu­rity of­fi­cers who sur­rounded them in a cor­don and tried to push them out.

Ms Yau and Mr Bag­gio won seats in city­wide polls last month, in which a num­ber of new law­mak­ers ad­vo­cat­ing self-de­ter­mi­na­tion or in­de­pen­dence swept to vic­tory.

Their oath-tak­ing was put on hold and they have been barred from meet­ings, pend­ing a ju­di­cial re­view into their first at­tempt at tak­ing the pledge three weeks ago.

The ju­di­cial re­view, brought by the city’s leader and the jus­tice sec­re­tary, into whether they should be dis­qual­i­fied will take place at Hong Kong’s High Court to­mor­row.

Local me­dia re­ported yes­ter­day that China’s top leg­isla­tive body will is­sue its own in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the city’s con­sti­tu­tion in a bid to bar the two law­mak­ers. –
