法官 Louisa Cieciora 批准三人保釋,案件押後至本月 24 日,移交中央刑事法院處理。保釋條件包括晚十朝五宵禁、每周向警署報到、禁止離境,及向警方提供上網工具的資料。法庭亦下令禁止他們與涉案者名單上的人士聯絡。

港府:要求英方公正處理事件

港府指,已要求英國政府提供聲稱事件的相關資料詳情,正等待回覆。港府已嚴正要求英方公正處理事件,切實保障聲稱涉事的經貿辦行政經理的合法權益,並必須確保經貿辦的正常工作不受影響。

英媒的報道則證實了袁松彪涉案。報道並指,另一被告韋志良是倫敦市警隊的義勇警察,在希斯路機場工作。 Matthew Tricket 則是移民局的執法人員,本身也是私家偵探。

三人被控罪名包括違反《英國國安法》第 3(1)及(9)條,即從事任何行意圖實在地協助一個外國情報機構進行與英國有關的活動;以及違反國安法第 13(2)及(7)條,即從事與外國勢力有關的被禁行為,而罔顧該等受禁行為會構成干預的效果。兩條罪行分別可被判監禁 14 年。
