14 Pro-democracy Hong Kong activists and organizers were arrested by the police for organizing and joining unauthoritized assembly
52 Korean Human Rights and Civil Society Groups issue joint petitions, express deep concern about the arrest, which could aggravate the social division and confusion at a time when governments and citizens must cooperate to fight the global disaster situation of COVID - 19.
The group urge the Hong Kong police to immediately cease the exercise of the unjust governmental authority such as arbitrary arrests; and ensure rallies to be held freely instead of arresting people who exercised their right to freedom of assembly; establish an independent investigative commission to investigate the continued violence of Hong Kong police throughout the protests and punish the perpetrators
