Police contacted 11 pan-democrats after the Lunar New Year for a new round of “arrests by appointment”, Ming Pao Daily reported Friday.
They include Democratic Party co-founder Martin Lee Chu-ming, chairwoman Emily Lau Wai-hing, former chairman Albert Ho Chun-yan and Civic Party chairwoman Audrey Eu Yuet-mee.
Legislative councilors including Fernando Cheung Chiu-hung, Frederick Fung Kin-kee, Ip Kin-yuen, Charles Mok Nai-kwong and Helena Wong Pik-wan are also on the list.
“The Hawk [referring to Police Commissioner Andy Tsang] will not let us go,” Lee said.
He said he received a call from the police Thursday asking him to be present at police headquarters for charges relating to organizing and taking part in illegal assemblies.
“We saw this coming,” Lee said.
Lee and Eu said they had expected to be arrested for taking part in the Occupy Central civil disobedience movement.
A police representative said the force will not rule out further arrests and will conduct investigations in a unbiased manner.
