A protester in Hong Kong has been sentenced to serve 21 months in prison after they were found guilty of throwing eggs.
31-year-old Pun Ho Chiu reportedly threw eggs at the police outside their headquarters in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.
The incident happened in October 2019 when the residents of Hong Kong were protesting their rights.
The Chinese court found him guilty of 9 charges, which includes assaulting a police officer, criminal damage and taking part in an illegal protest.
That’s too much for 21 months.
Winnie Lau, the ruling judge, said that the court should be protecting its police officers despite the fact that eggs are not a weapon of mass destruction.
Also, Pun did not cause any injuries.
It is said that Pun was an important figure during the June 21, 2019, protests.
The man was throwing eggs at the police station.
The court said that the acts of the man could have provoked discontent with the force, endangered society, and undermined law-enforcement.
When asked about the sentence that was given to Pun, she said that the acts of the man encouraged other protesters to do such thing.
The incident happened last year when thousands of Hong-Kong residents were protesting against China taking over the country’s law system.
