08 SEPTEMBER 2019
Joshua Wong delivered the following message through his legal representative:
I was arrested by police for “breaching bail conditions” this morning at the Airport’s customs and I am detained in custody now.
Preliminary legal advice suggested that the Court had acknowledged and approved my trips to Germany and the US when it granted bail on August 30. Therefore, it is believed that there are some mistakes have been made on the bail certificate. It is expected that I will be released after the hearing tomorrow morning so I hope fellow friends not to worry too much.
I believe the ridiculous circumstance I’m facing now is the direct consequence of the political prosecution and arrest. It also reflects the maladministration of HK government as by making these mistakes, it leads to the lose-lose situation now we are facing, even though I believe today’s incident is nothing personal against me.
I’m also discontented to police’s decision to detain me overnight, despite a clear procedural hiccup, which is utterly unreasonable.
