Hong Kong activist is released from prison


Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow was released from prison yesterday after serving nearly seven months for her role in an unauthoris­ed assembly during anti-government protests in 2019.

The 24-year-old was convicted along with fellow campaigner Joshua Wong for their involvemen­t in the rally near police headquarte­rs. Mr Wong remains in prison and the reason for Ms Chow’s early release after being sentenced to 10 months in jail was not clear.

The Correction­al Services Department did not immediatel­y respond to a request for comment.
