The man, identified only as having the last name Pang by CCN, performed Glory to Hong Kong outside the British consulate on the same day as the Queen was laid to rest in London.

Local police said he’s suspected of “committing an act with seditious intent,” as people were heard singing along to his harmonica playing according to videos shared on social media.

Still, he was released on bail and required to report back in November.

Hong Kong was a British colony until 1997 and Glory to Hong Kong was an anthem of 2019 anti-government protests there.
