Activist appears in court over fracas involving Hong Kong leader - Hong Kong - crime - Donald Tsang


An anti-government protester appeared in a Hong Kong court Wednesday over an incident in which the city's Beijing-appointed leader Donald Tsang was allegedly shoved in the chest.



Wong Chun-kit, 25, was arrested after the incident on March 1 which saw 66-year-old Tsang treated in hospital after he was allegedly pushed during a noisy anti-government demonstration.

Although Wong was initially arrested on suspicion of assaulting Tsang, he was last week charged with the lesser offence of disrupting public order.

At a brief appearance in a Hong Kong's Kowloon City Court Wednesday morning, Wong denied the charge. He was released on bail and is to face trial on May 30.

Wong's defence lawyer said the Hong Kong leader may be asked to testify at the trial. Prosecutors plan to call seven witnesses, including five police officers.
