Two co-founders of the Occupy movement, Benny Tai and Chan Kin-man, have filed appeals against their convictions and 16-month sentence.

Their partner, Reverend Chu Yiu-ming, who was given a suspended prison term, also lodged an appeal against his conviction.

The three were sentenced after being found guilty of public nuisance related charges over the 79-day protests in 2014.

Their lawyers said they will explain their grounds for appeal in due course.

All three were found guilty of conspiracy to cause a public nuisance. But Chu was cleared of the charge of inciting others to cause a public nuisance.
