Joshua Wong faces prison again as ‘slow drip’ of prosecutions takes its toll

Joshua Wong is getting used to being in court. A month ago, Hong Kong's most high-profile pro-democracy activist was joking with his co-defendants and waving at family as the Court of Final Appeal granted him leave to challenge a six month jail sentence he received in August. On Thursday he was one of 16 in the dock, facing another, separate jail term. That case was adjourned to a later date several hours into proceedings as judges needed more time to review a mountain of evidence provided in support of light sentences for the young defendants.
