    Outsiders and extradition / Gay ads back

    On Thursday's Backchat,  we talk about outsiders and extradition.The CE has said foreign intervention in matters relating to the fugitive law amendment made it reasonable for the CPG to speak out on the issue. She claims that foreign governments or organisations had attempted to damage the relationship between the CPG and the SARG and even recklessly attacked the judicial and human rights systems on the Mainland, escalating the matter to the level of the "One Country, Two Systems" principle. With Germany granting refugee status to two Hong Kongers, and the background of the whole US-China trade dispute, where should we draw the lines defining 'interference'? Is it reasonable for Chambers of Commerce here to  comment on issues that affect their members and business here? Both pro- establishment and pro-democratic groups have lobbied in the U.S. Is one side inappropriate? If we throw open the doors and  view issues as totally international, how can we avoid becoming part of superpower political conflicts? After 9.20, gay ads back.

    Wildlife Trafficking / Trade talks between Liu He and Donald Trump.

    On Monday's Backchat, wildlife trafficking. Hong Kong Customs recently seized more than $60million worth of elephant tusks and pangolin scales that arrived in a shipment from Africa, and over the years there have been seizures of illegal ivory and rhino horn by the authorities, that are believed to be for use in Chinese medicine or sculptures. After a record seizure in 2017 there were no prosecutions - authorities say there was insufficient evidence to support a reasonable prospect of convictio.  Is Hong Kong becoming a wildlife trafficking hub, despite laws here? Should Hong Kong take it more seriously? What other measures could be done to combat wildlife trafficking? After 9.20, trade talks between Liu He and Donald Trump.
