March 21 marks 8 months after the 7.21 Triad attack in Yuen Long. Many civilians took part in commemorative activities across different districts in Hong Kong.
As police charged in, a total of 61 civilians were arrested. Among them, a 42-year-old construction worker was charged with assaulting the police.
The defence barrister revealed in court that the defendant was assaulted by the police with the baton in his hand, elbow, upper body, sternum, lower body and other parts of his body, when the arrest was made.
During the 36-hour detention, he spent 5.5 hours in the hospital for medical treatment and his chest needed to be bandaged due to the wound caused by the police.
