China News Service, January 28. According to Hong Kong Wenhui.com, Gu Siyao, who has been convicted and sentenced by the court for insulting the national flag and the regional flag of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, was charged with insulting the national flag outside the court in July 2020. He was convicted and sentenced to 4 months in prison at the West Kowloon Court in Hong Kong this morning (28th).
The charge alleges that the 74-year-old male defendant Gu Siyao was involved in the illegal assembly of 15 people including Li Zhiying and Martin Lee in support of the Hong Kong insurgency on July 15, 2020, in the public area of the West Kowloon Court. The flag and other actions were intercepted and arrested by the police when he left the court.
The magistrate used 5 months as the starting point for sentencing, but given the defendant's physical condition, he sentenced him to 4 months of immediate imprisonment.
