Twelve Hong Kong pro-democracy demonstrators that were detained in Chinese waters while they were trying to flee to Taiwan are about to face prosecution after three months in detention.

Twelve Hong Kong pro-democracy demonstrators that were detained in Chinese territories while they were trying to flee to Taiwan are about to face prosecution after three months in detention.

Any Li, one of the fugitives, was arrested because she allegedly collaborated with foreign forces and breached the Beijing-imposed national security law.

Some protesters accused Hong Kong police of playing a role in the detention of the 12 activists. 

They accused the police of  deploying air surveillance to track the boat before it has even reached Chinese waters.

Chris Tang later, Police Chief, has later denied the accusations against them as “malicious” and said that the fugitives were to blame for deciding to jump bail.
