Video: Hong Kong man paid tribute to Queen but pro-China govt booked him for sedition

Thousands of Hong Kong residents have lined up in recent days in front of the British Consulate and left floral tributes to the queen, known affectionately as "boss lady" by many in the city who still remember colonial rule.

Hong Kong police said Tuesday they have arrested a man who paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II near the city's British Consulate for alleged sedition.

Video posted on social media and shared with The Associated Press shows the man was outside the British Consulate in Hong Kong as crowds gathered to mourn the queen on the day of her funeral.

He was playing songs on a harmonica including "Glory to Hong Kong," the anthem of pro-democracy protests that rocked the city in 2019. The crowd sang as the man played.

Police said the 43-year-old man was detained late Monday near the consulate, where dozens of people had gathered to remember the late monarch. Elizabeth was sovereign in the city when it was a British colony before its handover to Chinese rule in 1997.

Police said the man was arrested for investigation on suspicion of "committing an act with seditious intent." They did not provide further details.

Thousands of Hong Kong residents have lined up in recent days in front of the British Consulate and left floral tributes to the queen, known affectionately as "boss lady" by many in the city who still remember colonial rule.

Until the arrest, Hong Kong authorities had allowed the orderly, somber outpouring of grief to continue.
