Spokesmen for the Hong Kong Alliance of Supporting Chinese Patriotic Democratic Movements, which holds an annual commemoration ceremony for the anniversary of the Tiananmen events, confirmed to press that activist Chow was arrested for planning and incited to unauthorized demonstrations.
On the other hand, 7,000 police have been deployed across Hong Kong today to prevent commemorations or protests.
In the statement made by the Hong Kong police, it was reported that the ban on assembling had been imposed due to the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19).
The Hong Kong opposition group held a candle burning on June 4 last year to commemorate the events in Tiananmen.
According to unofficial figures, more than 2,000 people lost their lives in the events that began in April 1989 and lasted until June 4 in China, which were forcibly suppressed in Tiananmen Square in the capital Beijing. .
The protests, which began as a result of demands for democracy and free speech, inflation, political deterioration and corruption, drew intense participation, especially among the intelligentsia and students.
