The former head of the Catholic Church in Hong Kong has appeared in court- along with five other prominent pro-democracy activists.
Cardinal Joseph Zen, 90, had long been in Beijing’s crosshairs for his strong criticism of the government, as well as for alleged “collusion with foreign forces.”
They are charged with failing to register a fund that was used to pay the legal fees of demonstrators in protests in 2019.
