Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China Chairman Lee Cheuk-yan was sentenced to 14 months in jail on charges of participating in an unauthorized assembly.

The Secretary of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China Tsai Yiu-cheong said in an exclusive interview with the Hong Kong media that the incident has an impact on the operation of the organization, but does not hinder the determination to hold the June 4 party, and will submit an application to the Hong Kong government by the end of the month.

Last June, the Hong Kong Police Force banned the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (HKASPD) from holding a candlelight vigil in the Victoria Park on the grounds of epidemic prevention.

However, Tsai Yiu-cheong said in an interview that the current political environment in Hong Kong is very poor, the ban on the June Fourth Party last year, coupled with the recent sentences handed down by the authorities in the “8.18” and “8.31” cases, is even harsher than they had previously assessed. Therefore, a meeting will be held within the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China to assess the current political situation and possible situations, and to formulate different contingency plans.

According to Tsai Yiu-cheong, Lee Cheuk-yan has been a member of the Standing Committee of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China for the past 30 years, and this year is the first time he is absent from the June 4 memorial activities, but Lee Cheuk-yan has made it clear that even in prison, he will still mourn the June 4 in his own way.
