Retired hong kong cardinal joseph zen fined for failing to register protester legal defence fund

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Retired Hong Kong Cardinal Joseph Zen fined for failing to register protester legal defence fund” – below is their description.

A Hong Kong court has fined retired Hong Kong Cardinal Zen and five other trustees up to HK$4,000 (US$512) each for failing to properly register a fund set up to provide legal defence for 2019 anti-government protesters. The now-defunct 612 Humanitarian Relief Fund was established by Zen and his co-defendants. The court’s ruling is seen as a possible prelude to more legal trouble for the defendants, since national security police are still investigating the group’s alleged collusion with foreign forces.

Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
