Hong Kong police say they have arrested three former lawmakers for dousing the city’s legislature in stinky liquid last summer. Cops didn’t name the ex-politicians, but pro-democracy activists Ted Hui, Ray Chan and Chu Hoi-dick confirmed their arrests on Facebook. In June, footage showed two lawmakers rushing to the front of the chamber during a debate over a bill that sought to make it illegal to make fun of China’s national anthem and splash a reeking fluid around the room. In May, Ted Hui dropped a smelly rotten plant in the middle of a meeting. The three arrests came after Hong Kong’s opposition lawmakers resigned en masse last week in protest against Beijing’s push to suppress democracy in the city.
