    Beijing and extradition laws

    On Friday's Backchat, Beijing and extradition laws. The central government's liaison office said in a statement on Wednesday that the government's proposed changes have "sufficient legal basis" , and it's reported that CPG officials have also urged the pro-Beijing camp members to voice their support for and explain the law amendment by placing advertisements and penning articles in newspapers as well as setting up street booths. Carrie Lam meanwhile says that calls to shelve the bill are “almost impossible at this juncture”. Is Beijing's increased role making things better or worse? Where does it leave the CE and her administration? Leave a message below and we’ll try and read it out on air. Or email us at backchat@rthk.hk or call us on 23388266.

    Tackling Illegal Football Betting During the World Cup in Russia / Shark Fin - still being served in restaurants

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Jim Gould

    On​ Thurs​day's Backchat, with the World Cup in Russia about to kick off we're talking about efforts to combat illegal football betting, and the toll that gambling addiction can take. The Hong Kong Jockey Club, which runs a legal soccer betting operation, is estimating that about $30 billion - and average of $1 billion a day - will be placed in black market bets during the tournament. It says it expects that illegal bookmakers in the territory will make a profit of about $750 million from the World Cup. The police, who are about to launch a crackdown, are warning that illegal betting syndicates are becoming more technologically adept, shifting to the use of instant messaging apps rather than betting slips to gather stakes. Then there's the strain on individuals and families that gambling can cause if it gets out of hand. One counselling centre says it has found that a quarter of people who regularly bet on soccer matches have outstanding debts of more than $200,000. There are also calls to raise the legal age for placing bets from 18 to 21. What do you think? And what more do you think could be done to combat illegal and underage gambling, and to support people with an addiction. Leave a message, or email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20: shark fin - still being served.
