Cheng said Thursday he believed his is the first such successful U.K. asylum case from Hong Kong. He told The Associated Press that he wanted other democracy activists from the semi-autonomous Chinese city to be encouraged by his successful asylum application and seek protection in the U.K. as Beijing clamps down on the city's protest movement.
