    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.
