Hong Kong court lets democracy activists walk free
Three young pro-democracy leaders walking free from Hong Kong’s highest court, including the public face of the protests: Student leader Joshua Wong. But despite the reversal of an earlier ruling, the activists were solemn on their exit. (SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) PRO-DEMOCRACY PROTEST LEADER, JOSHUA WONG, SAYING: “According to the judgment handed down by the Court of Final Appeal, in the future if there are any similar actions, protesters will still receive imprisonment. So I will not, in any way, describe this as a win and do not see it as a reason to celebrate.” The unanimous decision was made by a five judge panel who warned against future acts of dissent and threatened stricter guidelines.
