He was convicted of making noise in public places earlier.

Father suffering from Parkinson's disease seeks probation
The defendant, Chen Hao Lun (35 years old), was charged on November 11, 2019, outside the HSBC Bank on Chai Wan Road, repeatedly and persistently criticizing the police officers and inciting crowds to obstruct the police officers with the intention of inciting others to destroy the peace of society.
The defense pleaded that the defendant's father had been suffering from Parkinson's disease for many years. The defendant had accompanied his father for follow-up consultation and physical therapy. His father will be scheduled for brain surgery in the short term, hoping to receive a suspended sentence.
To take care of his father, he should be more law-abiding
The magistrate retorted that the defendant knew that his father was ill and should be more law-abiding to avoid being unable to stay with his father due to imprisonment. The defendant's sisters could also take care of his father.
He also alleged that his father had been ill for many years, and the defendant has not yet scheduled his father, which shows that his father has no urgent need for care.
As for the defendant's lack of a case in the past, Zheng Guan said that he was abiding by the law and that no criminal record did not constitute a reason for pleading.
Behaviour of advocating the masses to revive the demonstrations
Zheng Guan continued that at the time of the incident, the streets were filled with wooden slats, bamboo branches, trash cans and other debris, and the defendant refueled to provoke the incident and revived the demonstrations.
The defendant also advocated that the crowd surrounded the police and walked out of the road, attracting public onlookers. Even though the police warned him, they still responded: "Shooting, shooting." He believed that the defendant was arrogant and there were more crowds than the police at the time. After the defendant clamored, more people watched, and someone used a laser pen to shoot the police officer's face. The demonstrators had already caused a serious threat, and they believed that a prison-style sentence should be imposed as an example.
