Two individuals arrested in Hong Kong on suspicion of sedition

June 26 (EUROPA PRESS) –

At least two individuals have been arrested this Sunday in Hong Kong on suspicion of “carrying out an act or acts with seditious intentions” according to the national security law imposed by Beijing.

The men, aged 31 and 53, were arrested after a search of their homes with a warrant. Agents there seized electronic communication devices “used to post seditious messages,” along with a computer, military knives and an imitation firearm.

Both also face possible charges for possession of firearms and other charges, according to the statement, collected by Bloomberg.


The National Security Department of the Hong Kong Police was established two years ago to enforce national security law after a year of pro-democracy protests.

Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to visit Hong Kong on Friday to mark the 25th anniversary of Chinese rule in the former British colony. He last visited in 2017.
