  • In what could be the largest demonstration since the city's handover to China in 1997, organizers claim more than one million protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong to oppose a controversial extradition bill that would enable China to extradite fugitives from the city. #CNN #News

                                            If Canada can use extradition law to arrest Huawei executive for America, how come Hong Kong can not have it to transfer criminals to other countries ??????? It is totally BS by these western medias and politicians ! Never believe in these western news, they only show you edited video to devilize HK gov and HK police ! You already know why they did that. Please only watch full unedited video of the entire event published by real citizens of Hong Kong.

                                              HK police only counted 230 thousand protestors, not a million. These western news always try to devilize HK police and HK gov. A million of people can not be hold in this small area ! I still remember when Trump's team said there were more than a million people at his Inauguration, but actually there were only 300k to 600k. It was an international joke. What a big liar... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/sep/06/donald-trump-inauguration-crowd-size-photos-edited

                                                The Government spokesman stressed the following points:
                                                The Bill was prompted by the murder of a Hong Kong citizen in Taiwan which brought into sharper focus deficiencies of the existing regime dealing with mutual legal assistance in criminal matters and the surrender of fugitives. If these deficiencies were not addressed as a matter of priority, Hong Kong would continue to be a bolt-hole for criminals, putting Hong Kong residents' safety at risk and disregarding our international responsibilities in the fight against cross-border and transnational crimes.

                                                The Bill covers only the most serious crimes punishable by imprisonment of seven years or more (i.e. cases that would normally be tried in Hong Kong's High Court) and the crimes must exist in the laws of both Hong Kong and the requesting jurisdiction before a surrender request will be processed.

                                                None of these serious criminal offences relate to the freedom of assembly, of the press, of speech, of academic freedom or publication. And no surrender for a political offence or if the purported charges are in fact on account of race, religion, nationality or political opinions.

                                                Executive and judicial safeguards built into the system protect all the human rights enshrined in the Basic Law and Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance and ensure that any requests for assistance or surrender are legal, and subject to challenge and review up to the Court of Final Appeal. As guaranteed under the Basic Law, the courts of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region exercise judicial power independently, free from any interference.

                                                Throughout the past four months, the Government has listened attentively to views expressed and responded positively to suggestions made. As a result, two sets of amendments were made, respectively before and after the presentation of the Bill. These have provided additional safeguards which have been welcomed by stakeholders and have effectively allayed most of those earlier concerns. The Chief Executive could not bypass the Court to surrender a fugitive to any requesting party including the Mainland. The government's proposals are therefore firmly grounded in the rule of law.

                                                    I don’t see any terms that would break their freedom. A reasonable bill made to fix a legal loop hole is being sabotaged and suspended because of media misinterpretation and smear campaign.

                                                                              The Bill was prompted by the murder of a Hong Kong citizen in Taiwan which brought into sharper focus deficiencies of the existing regime dealing with mutual legal assistance in criminal matters and the surrender of fugitives. If these deficiencies were not addressed as a matter of priority, Hong Kong would continue to be a bolt-hole for criminals, putting Hong Kong residents' safety at risk and disregarding our international responsibilities in the fight against cross-border and transnational crimes.

                                                                              The Bill covers only the most serious crimes punishable by imprisonment of seven years or more (i.e. cases that would normally be tried in Hong Kong's High Court) and the crimes must exist in the laws of both Hong Kong and the requesting jurisdiction before a surrender request will be processed.

                                                                              None of these serious criminal offences relate to the freedom of assembly, of the press, of speech, of academic freedom or publication. And no surrender for a political offence or if the purported charges are in fact on account of race, religion, nationality or political opinions.

                                                                              Executive and judicial safeguards built into the system protect all the human rights enshrined in the Basic Law and Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance and ensure that any requests for assistance or surrender are legal, and subject to challenge and review up to the Court of Final Appeal. As guaranteed under the Basic Law, the courts of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region exercise judicial power independently, free from any interference.

                                                                              Throughout the past four months, the Government has listened attentively to views expressed and responded positively to suggestions made. As a result, two sets of amendments were made, respectively before and after the presentation of the Bill. These have provided additional safeguards which have been welcomed by stakeholders and have effectively allayed most of those earlier concerns. The Chief Executive could not bypass the Court to surrender a fugitive to any requesting party including the Mainland. The government's proposals are therefore firmly grounded in the rule of law.

                                                                          • Constance Yen

I never heard Westerners complained about that. Therefore I concluded that the democracy is not important to Westerners but the chances to attack China are. Now HKers enjoy much more freedom than before under Briton’s colonial government

                                                                              These motherfu#kers try to take full control of HK and TW, and there has already been multiple sign that might be insignificant but it's their way to culturally invade us, like forcing Google to use simplified Chinese as standard, or demanding HK and TW put "China" before the name to emphasize we belong to them, or even just forcing "Devotion" be banned because it's offensive to them and them only.

The law was put forth - 1. there was no extradition law and since HK has it's own law one was needed, 2. the law was in response to a HK man murdering his girl friend in Taiwan and returned to HK where he avoided facing trial in Taiwan because there was no extradition law in HK. The vast majority of HK citizens support this law. Please report the WHOLE story not just what suits the editorial staff! This is hoe demonization of China by western media happens.
