“Although there’s a chance I might be put in jail, I have no regrets.”

In written statements to the court, Wong and several respondents, including another student leader Lester Shum, “admitted liability”, rather than explicitly pleading guilty, as is the case in a civil, rather than criminal, lawsuit.

Wong will now find out his fate at the end of the 45-day hearing of the trial in August. The judge will call in 33 more witnesses.

Al Jazeera’s Sarah Clarke, reporting from outside the courthouse, said: “We had expected a quick turnaround in the next day or two on the sentences for those pleading guilty, but the judge has announced that he wants to hear all of the cases.”
