Hong Kong police charged 47 dissidents for conspiring to subvert state power on Sunday, in what is the largest crackdown on the city’s pro-democracy political camp under the controversial security law imposed by Beijing.

The democracy activists, who include some of the most prominent political figures in Hong Kong, walked into different police stations Sunday afternoon to report to the police, about seven weeks after they were arrested for alleged subversion in relation to unofficial primaries held by the pro-democracy camp last year.EFE-EPA
