Hong Kong relents

The long-expected scrapping of the bill was overshadowed by the drama surrounding the release from a Hong Kong prison of the murder suspect at the heart of the extradition case controversy.

Chan Tong-kai, who completed a separate sentence for money laundering, told reporters after his release Wednesday that he wished to turn himself in to authorities in Taiwan, where he’s wanted for killing his pregnant girlfriend, Poon Hiu-wing.

Taiwan is not accepting his surrender, so technically, the rat got away with murder...

Idontwanthimyuocanhavehimit'salrightbyme. On topic, ahem, I wonder how much face China is losing for this? How long will Carrie Lam have her job now? I cant see China rolling over for this, unless the worldwide cries of "bad form" have had a impact on Xi Jinping.

Taiwan openly declared the two country one system null last week, not surprisingly, so technically, no extradition bill or treaty between countries, it means no jurisdiction either way. 

The law people explained it to me this way, it's like any country issuing a warrant and can't arrest because the country the subject is in does not recognize your sovereignty, therefore, your legal issues. 

Totally different with the case of a wife of a US diplomat who has no immunity but is still withheld from extradition back to the UK to face legal proceedings over a hit and run death.
