Hong Kong protests: court adds to activist Joshua Wong’s jail time with four-month sentence for 2019 mask demonstration

  • Veteran activist Koo Sze-yiu, 75, jailed for five months over the same unauthorised rally, which saw attendees flout a government ban on masks that came into effect that morning
  • The 24-year-old Wong was already serving a 13½-month sentence connected to the 15-hour siege of police headquarters that year; he is expected to plead guilty to other assembly related charges at the end of the month
