Hong Kong Police arrested prominent pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow Ting late on Monday under the new national security law on charges of inciting secession, according to tweets by fellow activist Nathan Law, who is currently in Britain.

A post on Chow’s official Facebook on Monday evening said police had arrived at her home and that her lawyers were rushing to the scene.

Footage from TVB Hong Kong showed Chow being escorted out of her home and driven away by police.

The former member of now-disbanded political organization Demosisto appeared in court last week after she pleaded guilty to inciting others to participate in an unlawful assembly, as well as to participating in an unauthorized assembly, related to protests in June last year.
