HK activist cleared of 'corrupt conduct' charge

The Independent Commission Against Corruption said on Monday (August 2) that Wong had provided "entertainment to induce others to vote", after he performed two songs and appealed to the audience to vote for pro-democracy activist Au Nok-hin in a 2018 legislative by-election.

"Hong Kongers will continue to sing. Hong Kongers will continue to hang in there," Wong told reporters outside the Eastern Magistrates' Court after the hearing.

Prosecutors at the court did not pursue the charge against Wong, saying a bind-over order - to prevent certain behaviour from occurring in future, which is neither a conviction nor a punishment - would suffice.
