The High Court of Hong Kong on Friday kept the travel ban of Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, instigator of Hong Kong riots, as part of his bail condition.

The court refused to approve Lai's request of lifting the restriction over outbound trips as he can not provide specific travel plans, but canceled the requirement for him to report to police once a week.

Lai, along with Lee Cheuk-yan and Yeung Sum, was arrested on Feb. 28 for participating in an unauthorized assembly on Aug. 31, 2019 and criminally intimidating a journalist on June 4, 2017. He was then arrested on April 18 for another unauthorized assembly, marking the second time for him to be arrested this year.
