Police on Wednesday announced their first arrest under Hong Kong’s new national security law.

“A man was arrested for holding a HK Independence flag in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, violating the National Security Law. This is the first arrest made since the law has come into force,” the police said on Twitter.

Earlier on Wednesday, Basic Law Committee member Albert Chen said waving a Hong Kong independence flag would be a “Grey area” under the new law, and would only be an offence if the bearer was involved in organising, planning, committing or participating in acts that threaten national security.
