A primary school teacher, Leung Waiman, was arrested yesterday (July 2) for Threats to destroy or damage property in terms of publishing on Facebook anti-Extradition Law posts like "Place a cup of cocktail wine in front of the Legco". It means that the Hong Kong police would arrest anybody for their anti-authorities words, which is a gross violation of freedom of speech. Already bailed out, Leung has to report to the police station in August. She is not allowed to leave Kong, and she may be prosecuted by the Department of Justice.
The Hong Kong Police thoroughly searched Miss Leung's residence and took photos of her living space, which greatly agitated her family. In the police station, the police showed Leung her own facebook icon pictures, with slogans like "No Amendment; Withdraw Evil Law!" and "Activists of 2016 Lunar New Year Mongkok Clash are Innocent", and questioned her about her political purpose concerned, whether she has shared lawmaker James To's live broadcast post on the Legco's review of the Extradition Bill, the meaning of "cocktail wine" in one of her posts on the Extradition Law -- "No more talking! Place a cup of cocktail wine in front of the Legco next week! Fxxk!" -- and whether she knows those who have liked or shared that post.
Certain law experts opine that it is not illegal to place a cup of cocktail wine in front of the Legislative Council and drink it there.
