    Suspension of Extradition Bill

    On Monday's Backchat: we're asking is there any future for Carrie Lam, and for the extradition bill? The government has officially suspended passage of the controversial legislation, and towards the end of yesterday's massive march, the Chief Executive apologized to the people of Hong Kong, admitting that the deficiencies in the government's work had caused disappointment and grief among the people. Where do we go now? How did Carrie Lam, and the Liaison Office so badly get this wrong? How should the police handling demonstrators still occupying roads in Central? What does Beijing make of the debacle?

    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.
