Former Hong Kong opposition lawmaker Ted Hui has announced he has gone into exile while on a visit to Denmark, in yet another case of a pro-democracy figure fleeing the city since a sweeping security law was imposed by Beijing.

"I just finished my three-day visit to Denmark. I hereby announce that I am in exile, and quit the Hong Kong democratic party, leaving Hong Kong," Hui, 38, revealed on his Facebook page late Thursday night.

Hong Kong's Security Bureau "strongly condemned" the decision, the Hong Kong Free Press reported Friday. EFE-EPA
