HeadlineNov 28, 2022

In Hong Kong, six high-profile pro-democracy advocates, including the 90-year-old Bishop Joseph Zen, were found guilty Friday for failing to register a fund that helped people arrested during mass protests in 2019. The defendants will be fined up to around $500 each. Observers say the case is meant to further deter pro-democracy organizing in Hong Kong.
