Taipei, May 10 (CNA) A group of Hong Kongers seeking political asylum in Taiwan apologized to their mothers Sunday for not being with them on Mother's Day and shared their handwritten letters to their moms on a Facebook page.

The letters were posted on the Facebook page of the Taipei restaurant Aegis, which offers work opportunities to Hong Kongers who have fled to Taiwan for fear of prosecution.

"Happy Mother's Day," one letter read. "Please forgive me for not being in Hong Kong, and for making you scared (for me). Please forgive me for not being able to give you a complete Mother's Day."

In another letter, a Hong Konger named Silver wrote, "This is the first Mother's Day I am not spending by your side, and I am sorry."    [FULL  STORY]
