Updated 21:05, 27-Jul-2021

Tong Ying-kit, the first person charged under the national security law in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), has been found guilty of terrorism and inciting secession.

An alternative charge of dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm was not considered. The High Court will hear mitigation arguments on Thursday and sentencing will be announced at a later date.

During a protest in July 2020, Tong was seen ramming a motorbike into a police line, injuring three officers, while carrying a banner with an inciting slogan.
