They entered Hong Kong on tourist visas on Friday, February 2nd, and were arrested by Hong Kong immigration officials on Sunday.

The Hong Kong authorities have also found sufficient evidence of a residence permit violation for the event organizer, as well as the misuse of tourist visas issued to the performers.
