Civics: Punished in Hong Kong for Texting the Press

Wall Street Journal:

Po­lice ar­rested Ms. Mo, along with nearly the en­tire op­po­si­tion move­ment, in Jan­uary. She and 46 oth­ers are charged with con­spir­acy to com­mit sub­ver­sion un­der the na­tional se­cu­rity law for or­ga­niz­ing or par­tic­i­pat­ing in an in­for­mal pro-democ­racy pri­mary elec­tion last July. Judge Es­ther Toh de­nied Ms. Mo bail in April, and the world learned why on Fri­day.
