Hong Kong court refuses to lift travel ban of Jimmy Lai
The High Court of Hong Kong on Friday refused to lift the travel ban of Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, instigator of Hong Kong riots.
The court did not approve Lai's request of canceling the restriction over outbound trips again. Lai first filed such an application and was rejected on May 22.
The travel ban is part of the bail condition of Lai, who was arrested in February for participating in an unauthorized assembly and criminally intimidating a journalist. He was then arrested again in April for another unauthorized assembly.
Lai was due to stand trial next Monday.
