Former lawmaker and Demosisto leader Nathan Law has left Hong Kong for an unknown destination.
Law says in a social media posting that he would not reveal too much about his whereabouts or current situation, based on risk assessment.
But Law made it clear he would continue advocacy work on the international level.
The announcement came two days after Beijing imposed a sweeping national security law, which bans acts of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces.
Law had appeared at a US Congressional hearing about the newly enacted legislation via video link overnight on Wednesday.
He told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that he and other pro-democracy leaders, like his former Demosisto colleague Joshua Wong, were in danger of being locked up for long periods under the law.
The ousted lawmaker told the US panel the very act of talking to them could see him sent to prison for years.
The day before, Demosisto announced it was disbanded after Law, Wong and Agnes Chow announced they had left the group.
Beijing and SAR officials say the new security law will target only a small number of people who endanger national security and will provide stability to Hong Kong after months of chaos.
