(Bloomberg) – Hong Kong activist oshoshua Wong and former Demosisto members Agnes Chou and Ivan Lam plan to plead guilty to all charges related to the siege of police headquarters last June.

The pro-democracy activist has faced a number of charges in connection with months of protests that ravaged the city before China passed a controversial national security law in late June this year.

The alleged offenses against Wong, Chow and Lam in connection with the June 2019 incident include organizing and participating in an unauthorized assembly, according to the judiciary’s website.
