Ten Hong Kong fugitives were sentenced to prison terms ranging from seven months to three years by a Shenzhen court on December 30, 2020. They were part of a group of 12 Hongkongers who were arrested at sea in August by mainland Chinese authorities. The 12, who face charges related to 2019 anti-government protests in Hong Kong, had been trying to flee to Taiwan. The Yantian District People’s Court found them guilty of taking part in or organising an illegal border crossing. Two underage fugitives from the group have been turned over to Hong Kong police.
