Yuen Long’s transport interchange has long been the home of a large pro-democracy Lennon Wall, with messages of support for the anti-extradition law movement.

During the Lunar New Year festivities, bloody clashes broke out between protesters and police, triggered by the authorities’ attempts to clear street hawkers.

The news of his transfer first emerged on Wednesday as opposition lawmaker Cheng Chung-tai, chair of Civic Passion, said on Facebook that an inmate had received enough letters and Christmas cards to fill a suitcase. He speculated as to the reason for the transfer: “Maybe there was sensitive content, maybe some maniacs said they would break into the prison, maybe the Communists set him up, maybe the Department made a great deal out of it… To conclude, after receiving these cards the inmate was transferred to a Category A prison with maximum security…”
