Lam, who fled to Taiwan amid fears of Chinese persecution, was attacked on April 21 as he ate breakfast at a coffee shop in Taipei's Zhongshan District, just days before opening his new bookshop in the city.
The Taipei City Prosecutors Office charged the three suspects in the attack — a 51-year-old man surnamed Cheng (鄭) and two brothers aged 33 and 27 surnamed Tseng (曾) — with causing bodily injury, coercion, public insult and damages.
Prosecutors allege that Cheng, who lives in Kaohsiung, was angered by Lam's pro-democracy and human rights advocacy in Hong Kong and conceived the attack after learning that he planned to reopen his Causeway Bay Books on April 25 in Taipei. [FULL STORY]
