Nine Stand Trial in Hong Kong For ‘Inciting’ 2014 Pro-Democracy Movement

Authorities in Hong Kong on Monday put on trial nine prominent figures of the city's 2014 Occupy Central pro-democracy movement, four years after the event, on public order charges. The three activists who initiated the movement -- law professor Benny Tai, retired sociology professor Chan Kin-man, and reverend Chu Yiu-ming -- face one count each of conspiracy to cause public nuisance, inciting others to cause public nuisance, and inciting people to incite others to cause public nuisance.
