    Should Hong Kong allow extradition to China?

    https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/...g-fugitives-so

    The executive branch are stating that to have an extradition agreement with Taiwan it must enact one with China. In the last few years the mainland has voluntary handed over a few fugitives back to HK.

    Should Hong Kong allow extradition to jurisdictions that don't have the rule of law and operate the death penalty?

    What will happen to current extradition agreements with Kong Kong if there is a view the fugitive could be initially sent to Hong Kong then reditioned to the Mainland for political crimes?

    It would stop the PRC having to snatch book sellers, they could just dig up an old case and find new evidence and ask them to be sent over for a fresh trial. Much easier than mercedes vans with blacked out windows and all done by the law.

    One country two systems was there for a purpose. Wasn't it?

    Why does one need to extradite to the same country?

    If they want a certain outcome, I'm sure all Hong Kong courts are workable.

    I am not sure what the benefit is for China in the long term. Being able to manage a modern pluralistic society should be a benefit to a regime that is trying to manage a society that is getting more advanced socially and eventually politically.

    I would suggest it is a special kind of person that would like to take away the rule of law for 7 million people!

    So much better if they can say it was done 'by the law'.
