LEE Cheuk Yan, general secretary of the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU) is a prominent leader in the trade union and democratic movement in Hong Kong and well respected in the international trade union family. He is faced with nine criminal offences of organising and taking part in un-authorised assemblies during the anti-extradition and democratic movement in 2019 and in 2020. His first trial starts on 16 February.
