Occupy activists found guilty but the conflict remains unsettled

On April 24, a judge at the West Kowloon Court passed sentence on four of the nine leaders of the Umbrella Movement, including the Occupy Central trio of Benny Tai Yiu-ting, Chan Kin-man and Reverend Chu Yiu-ming, for their role in the 79 civil disobedience protest more than four years ago. Tai and Chan were both jailed for 16 months, Shiu, who is an incumbent Legco member, and Raphael Wong Ho-ming received eight-month sentences while Reverend Chu’s 16-month sentence was suspended for two years because of his poor health and service to society.
