Q&A

Q5: How could people visiting or transiting through Hong Kong be sent to mainland China for trial or imprisonment if they have never been to the Mainland and don't have a criminal record there?

A: The proposed amendments open the door for extradition to China. In the future, mainland China will be able to arbitrarily demand that the Hong Kong government hand over "fugitives" on "trumped-up charges." Since the Hong Kong government follows Beijing’s command, mainland China will have the final say on whether those persons have entered mainland China and truly violated Mainland law. The Hong Kong courts will have difficulty exercising substantive checks. Anyone could become a fugitive.
