Albert Ho and Helena Wong, both of the Democratic Party, and lawmaker Charles Mok, voluntarily turned themselves in at Wan Chai police headquarters Monday morning on the request of the police. Ho and Wong held up small paper yellow umbrellas -- the symbol of the democracy movement -- as they went into the police station while supporters carrying umbrellas and placards shouted "We want universal suffrage". A number of protest leaders have already been arrested only to be released without charge -- including prominent student leaders Joshua Wong and Alex Chow -- in a controversial procedure which they say is harassment.
