  • Hong Kong national security law
    • A court in Hong Kong finds 24-year-old Tong Ying-kit, the first person to be charged under the national security law on July 1, 2020 (one day after its approval), guilty of terrorism and secession. He faces a sentence from seven-to-life in prison. The ruling also marked a limit to free speech for the slogan " Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times", which Tong carried when he committed the offense. The judges stated that the slogan could "incite others to commit secession". (DW) (Bloomberg)
  • The trial against Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu and ten others for financial crimes open in the Holy See. Becciu and a monsignor are the only two to appear in court in person. Becciu denied any wrongdoing and the trial was adjourned. Pope Francis had previously stripped Becciu of his immunity and approved his indictment. Becciu's lawyers asked the court not to order the Cardinal's arrest. (Reuters)

  • Asylum in Australia
    • An Afghan Tajik asylum seeker who has been held in immigration detention by Australia for eight years sues the Australian Government in the Federal Court. A former employee of the Islamic Republican government, the man fled an assassination attempt by the Taliban and argues that his family is still being targeted in Afghanistan and that his indefinite detention prevents him from organising their escape from the violence. The Government has requested the case be dismissed and denied they had any legal obligations towards Afghan citizens. (The Guardian)
