Tong Ying-kit, the first person charged under the national security law, appeared at West Kowloon Magistrates' Court in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Monday.

Tong was charged with inciting separatism and terrorism after he rammed a motorbike into a police line, injuring three officers, during a protest back in July. He was also carrying a banner with the slogan "liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times."

Chief Magistrate So Wai-tak kept Tong in custody and transferred his case to the High Court of the HKSAR to await trial.
