By Kyodo News 1 October 2020
HONG KONG—Prominent Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong was indicted Wednesday over an anti-mask law protest last October, another court case Wong said the government uses to contain his political activities.
Wong, 23, is accused of taking part in an unauthorized assembly on Oct. 5 while wearing a facemask to conceal his identity, an offense under the newly invoked anti-mask law that is pending judicial review on its constitutionality.
