Jimmy Lai, the jailed Hong Kong media tycoon and prominent supporter of democracy, has been given a new prison sentence of 14 months for organising an unauthorised demonstration on October 1, 2019. Al Jazeera reports that with Friday’s sentence, Lai – who is already behind bars for taking part in earlier protests – must now serve a total of 20 months in jail. Seven other leading activists, including 25-year-old campaigner Figo Chan, as well as former legislators Lee Cheuk-yan and Leung Kwok-hung, were also given new prison terms of up to 18 months, while two others received suspended sentences.
