Global Signing: Against Extradition to China … Against Suppression of Citizens’ Will Stand Up for Hong Kong
The voices of Hong Kong citizens against the changes to the “Anti-Extradition Law” are loud and clear, and the will of the people cannot be suppressed. SAR Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor should not only withdraw the amendment but also step down and admit to the offence. If the pro-government parties and government want to force through the “Extradition Law”, not only will it affect Hong Kong’s justice system, but also ruin Hong Kong’s reputation as an international city.
The current Extradition Law was established by the Legislature Council more than 20 years ago, and specifically excludes China. This is not a loophole as pointed out by the Government, but rather a protection against the lack of human rights and the incompetence of the justice system and criminal law in China. The current proposal means the Chief Executive can bypass the Legislative Council, giving the Chief Executive the sole right to decide on extradition and the details of the extradition. This disables the function of the Legislative Council to monitor extradition cases.
Moreover, the draft on the Extradition Law does not provide enough legal protection to the suspect as the Court can approve the extradition based on surface evidence alone. The legal threshold level is very low, and the Court’s role of reviewing and disapproving of the extradition is very limited. If the amendment is passed, not only will a lot of legal issues remain unresolved, but possibly raise even more problems. Hong Kong, a city that lives by the rule of law, is now facing an unforeseen justice crisis.
The “Chinese style of prosecution”, puts fear in the heart of Hong Kong people. Chinese Courts may only announce trial details the evening before, or even 30 minutes before a trail via Weibo. The official website of the Court never releases any records. Offenders are denied the basic access to defense lawyers, an independent jury and public attendees to the trail.
The result of Chinese human rights activists Mr. Liu Xiaobo and Mr. Wang Quanzhang are examples of the outcome of “Chinese style prosecution”. How can one trust the legal system of a country without justice and democracy?
Opposing the “Extradition Law” amendment is imminent. Civil Human Rights Front is calling all citizens to stand up for human rights and be mindful of the evil tricks played by the government and the pro-government parties. At this stage, not only do we need Hong Kong citizens to stand up, but also people globally to cosign. We all stand up to the suppression of the Chinese Communist Party.
The will of the citizens cannot be repressed. Stand up for Hong Kong!
