Claim : Hong Kong Independence Activist Committed Suicide In UK!

Truth : Ho Yit King Was Not Hong Kong Independence Activist!
This appears to be yet another example of PROPAGANDA created or promoted by CCP supporters and/or the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Her Name Was Fion Ho Yee-King
First, let me just point out that a Chinese lady did indeed commit suicide in the UK, after migrating from Hong Kong. However, her name was not Ho Yi King or Ho Yit King or Ho Yik King.
She was known as Fion Ho in the UK, and her name in Hong Kong was Ho Yee-King.
This is important, because if you search for “Ho Yit King” or “Ho Yi King” or “Ho Yik King”, you will get links to the same propaganda story on multiple Chinese websites and social media. But if you search for “Ho Yee King” or “Fion Ho”, you will get links to her true story.
Fact #2 : Fion Ho Was Not A Hong Kong Independence Activist
Fion Ho Yee King was a 27 year-old Hong Kong native who migrated to the United Kingdom in April 2022, but sadly committed suicide in November 2022.
However, she was not a Hong Kong independence activist. If you look up the list of activists associated with the Hong Kong protests or independence movement, you won’t find any reference to her name.
In fact, Fion Ho was working in Jordan as an Assessment Officer, from September 2019 to October 2020 – during the time of the Hong Kong protests.
Fact #3 : Fion Ho Did Not Flee Hong Kong
Fion Ho certainly did not flee Hong Kong to escape the National Security law. After all, she was in Jordan when the controversial National Security Law was passed on 30 June 2020.
If she wanted to avoid the National Security Law, she would have just remained in Jordan, or migrated to the UK. Instead, she returned to Hong Long in December 2020 – after the National Security Law was in effect!
Fact #4 : Fion Ho Had A Job In The UK
As far as I can tell – Fion Ho Yee King did not have trouble getting a job in the UK. In fact, she appears to have migrated to the United Kingdom for a job.
She was working as an International and Relief Service Officer for the Hong Kong Red Cross from December 2020 to March 2022, before migrating to the UK the next month to work for a charity promoting education for women and girls internationally.
Fact #4 : Fion Ho Had Financial Trouble
According to her brother, Tommy Ho Yiu Hang, Fion suffered from stress and mental health issues due to the cost of living crisis in the UK.
Fion Ho had been paying £900 a month to rent a room in a South West London flat, which she described as “unhygienic”. She was worried about her income, and ability to make ends meet.
After her death, Tommy found her diary, in which she detailed the days when she would eat only lunch or dinner to save money.
Fact #5 : Fion Ho Was Found By Fellow Tenant
Fion Ho Yee King was not found by neighbours after they noticed a strange smell. When she failed to turn up for work and did not answer her phone, her brother Tommy asked one of the other three tenants of her flat to check on her.
That was when Fion was discovered to have taken her own life. She was pronounced dead on 3 November 2022, and Coroner Dr. Anton van Dellen listed her death as a suicide on 24 January 2023.

Fact #6 : NHS Offers Free Counselling For Depression
The video claimed or suggested that Ho Yit King / Ho Yee King was started seeing a psychologist, but stopped because she could not afford the exorbitant fees.
The truth is – there is no evidence Fion Ho ever saw a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counsellor. She was booked for a psychological counselling session for depression, but she never made it to the session – she committed suicide four days before the appointment.
A private counselling session with a private psychologist / psychiatrist would be expensive, but the NHS offers free counselling for depression.
Fact #7 : UK ID Not Required To Open Bank Account
There is no evidence that Fion Ho Yee King faced any issue opening a bank account.
UK banks do not require a UK ID to open an account. Common forms of identification that they accept include:
- UK birth certificate (for applicants under 18 years old)
- EU / EEA National Identity Card
- UK photo card driving licence
- UK Residence Permit
Fact #8 : BNO Passport Was Established In 1987
The British National (Overseas) passport is not available only to Hong Kong independence activists. In fact, the BNO passport was created in 1987 – after the enactment of the Hong Kong Act 1985, conferring British Overseas Territory citizen status for Hong Kong permanent residents (and their children) who register for the status by 30 June 1997.
The BNO visa does not confer you British citizenship. However, since 31 January 2021, BNO visa recipients can stay for up to 5 years, and extend that as many times as they wish. They can also apply to live in the UK permanently after living there for at least 5 years.
