    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.

    Extradition laws / University students penalized after protesting at Democracy Wall

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, extradition laws. Government plans to amend the extradition laws that will allow hand over fugitives to mainland China, Taiwan and Macau, are being criticised by pan dems and pro-business forces. Should they only apply to crimes like murder, to stop business people becoming innocent victims when they break the Mainland's complicated laws?  Are there fears over China's human rights record and fair trials for dissidents?  After 9.20, Polytechnic University students penalized for protesting over the democracy wall.  Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
