A former standing committee member of the now-defunct organiser of Hong Kong’s annual Tiananmen Massacre vigil has pleaded guilty to not complying with a national security police data probe. He was sentenced to three months in jail on Wednesday.

Ex-standing committee member of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China Simon Leung appeared in front of Acting Chief Magistrate Peter Law at West Kowloon Magistrates Courts.

The court clerk read out Leung’s charge, and asked what his plea was: “He who has a mind to beat his dog will easily find a stick, [I] plead guilty,” said Leung.
