Q&A

Q3: Why is the international community concerned about the amendments to Hong Kong's Fugitive Offenders Ordinance?

A: Many countries worry that the amendments to Hong Kong's Fugitive Offenders Ordinance could pose a threat to personal safety. They have paid considerable attention to this matter and petitioned the Hong Kong government to withdraw or delay the amendments for the ordinance could profoundly undermine the high degree of autonomy and protection of human rights in Hong Kong. It places all foreign nationals in Hong Kong under the risk and danger of extradition and seriously affects the business security of international companies in Hong Kong. Some multinational corporations are even considering moving their headquarters to other cities in Asia.
