The trial of bishop emeritus of Hong Kong, Cardinal Joseph Zen begins today. He along with a Cantopop singer, lawyer and LGBTQ activist are set to appear in court.

After the Hong Kong national security law was passed, the cardinal was arrested in May for his role as a trustee in a relief fund known to help pro-democracy protesters who participated in the 2019 demonstrations in Hong Kong.

Cardinal Zen is well-known for his outspoken calls for change in China.

Bishop Emeritus, Hong Kong
as all believers, we must be optimistic. But it doesn't mean that we can hope in immediate success because every relation depends on two parts. And now if China doesn't change its policy, there's nothing we can expect.

All 6 of the defendants, including Cardinal Zen, have pleaded not guilty. The trial is set to last until September 23, and if found guilty, the cardinal could face serious fines or jail time.
