A police source said on condition of anonymity that the suspect was the one who threw his motorbike at a group of police on Wednesday while thousands of people were demonstrating against security law on the anniversary of the handover. Images filmed by local TV stations showed a man on an orange motorcycle with a flag carrying one of the slogans of the pro-democracy protest: " Free Hong Kong, the revolution of our time ". Police said three officers were injured.

Controversial law

The Chinese regime imposed on June 30 a very controversial text on the former British colony in that it violates, according to certain foreign capitals, the principle " One country, two systems " supposed to guarantee to Hong Kong freedoms unknown elsewhere in China.

Until the last moment, Beijing has kept secret the content of this law aimed at suppressing subversion, secession, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces, and which is a response to the protest movement unprecedented since 1997 which appeared there is one year old.
