Over 30 Hong Kong protesters who stormed legislature on July 1 seek refuge in Taiwan, fearing unfair prosecution

Several Hong Kong protesters involved in the storming of the Legislative Council on July 1 have fled to Taiwan because of fears over unfair prosecution. Apple Daily cited unnamed sources on Friday stating that the activists – mostly students – had fled to the self-ruled island, with some planning to seek long-term visas or asylum. A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to HKFP that over 30 demonstrators are now in Taiwan, with possibly more planning to leave Hong Kong.
