February 29, marked the 6th month of the 831 incident when riot police stormed onto the subway trains at Prince Edward Station and indiscriminately attacked passengers who were on their way home last August.
A large group of civilians gathered outside the station in remembrance of the victims and the memorial event later evolved into clashes with riot police deploying tear gas during the dispersal operation.
A 19-year-old Middle Eastern man was charged for assaulting police after he and more than a dozen men hurled objects at plainclothes. Since the court hearing has been postponed, the defendant will be remanded in custody till May 11.
Furthermore, a 42-year-old buyer and a 31-year-old Dutch teacher were charged with arson for burning debris in a roadblock and throwing paper into a fire. Both men will be in custody till April 27 before taken to court for hearing.
