by

Hong Kong’s pro-democracy trade union coalition is in the process of disbanding, its vice chairperson has told HKFP, becoming the latest civil society group to fold in the face of an intensified government crackdown.

Leo Tang of the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions on Friday confirmed the group had begun disbandment procedures, but said nobody from its leadership has resigned.

Earlier local media reports on Friday had suggested that its chief executive Mung Siu-tat had already stepped down.
