    Extradition laws - 'Fugitive Offenders' controversy / Thai general election

    On Tuesday's Backchat, more on the 'Fugitive Offenders' controversy. 21 legal academics from the Scholars' Alliance for Academic Freedom last month initiated a signature campaign against the Government's proposed law change, worrying that fugitives would be extradited before a fair trial in the jurisdiction concerned was guaranteed. Many business organisations and foreign chambers of commerce also oppose aspects of the deal, which the CE now says will go ahead even if it is not effective in Taiwan . What's the future of the proposal?

    After 9.20, a review of the Thai general election.

    Gwei-Lo / Self-guided walking tour in Sham Shui Po

    On Wednesday's Backchat, 'Gweilo'. A British man has filed a discrimination lawsuit against his former employer, claiming he was called a “gweilo” at work and was excluded on projects. Is the term discriminatory, or does it depend on how it's said? Is it acceptable for a white person to say it, but not otherwise? Is it impolite? Is it simply racist? Do you use the word? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, a self-guided walking tour in Sham Shui-Po.
