    Outsiders and extradition / Gay ads back

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Paul Zimmerman

    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.
