Q&A

Q1: Why are the proposed amendments to Hong Kong's Fugitive Offenders Ordinance called a malicious "Extradition to China bill"?

A: The "Extradition to China bill" is a malicious law under which the people of Hong Kong may be sent to mainland China for trial at any time. "Extradition to China" signifies that "the amendments end the rule of law in Hong Kong." If Hong Kong pass the amended Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, people can be handed over to mainland China with an authorization by the Hong Kong chief executive and procedural court review. Since the Hong Kong chief executive follows Beijing’s commands, Beijing could demand that the Hong Kong government arrest any individual for expressing dissatisfaction towards CCP or for other reasons. Taiwanese people who travel to or transit through Hong Kong could also be sent to mainland China for trial on trumped up charges.
