Forty-seven pan-democrats were involved in the primary election of the pro-democracy "35+" and were charged with conspiracy to subvert state power. Yuan Jiawei, who had earlier stated that he would plead guilty, had proposed that he would be sentenced by one judge instead of three. Dissatisfied with some of the facts of the case that testified against her, the court opened a court session today (28th). It is reported that Yuan has given up her application for a single judge to sentence. However, the three judges Chen Qingwei, Chen Jiaxin and Chen Zhongheng all believed that these contents had no effect on Yuan's sentence and decided to continue the original case.


Questioning the Prosecution's No Evidence Alleging Yuan Meihua's Illegal Acts

Qi Zhi, a senior barrister representing Yuan Jiawei, pointed out that the case mentioned that the defendants knew that the national security law would be promulgated, and considered it to be an opinion or comment. Qi Zhi pointed out that there were relevant rumors at the time, but the specific content of the national security law was not clear. In addition, the facts of the case refer to Yuan Meihua's illegal behavior, and the prosecution has no relevant evidence.

However, the three judges believed that these disputed content had no impact on Yuan's sentence, and they did not approve the revision in the end, and the original version would continue to be used.
