Global Signing: Against Extradition to China … Against Suppression of Citizens’ Will Stand Up for Hong Kong

香港市民反對修訂「引渡條例」的聲音,到了今天已經非常清晰。「民意不可欺」,林鄭月娥理應撤回修訂,並兌現選舉承諾下台謝罪。若保皇黨和政府繼續背逆民意,強行通過「引渡條例」,所影響的並非只有香港法治,還會影響香港的國際地位。

 

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.

 

現時香港引渡安排排除中國大陸,是二十多年前立法會通過《逃犯條例》的刻意決定,並不是政府所指的「漏洞」,原因是對中國的人權保障、法治水平及刑事司法制度的不足極為憂慮。目前草案建議,權予由行政長官一人,發出證明書以展開移交安排,即變相容許行政長官繞過立法會,自行決定移交實質細節,此舉變相除去現時立法機關對個案方式移交安排的重要監察功能。

 

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.

 

另外,草案建議的移交安排,不能為犯人提供足夠的法律保障,因為法庭要頒布拘押令只須表面證據成立﹐法定門檻其實非常低,法庭在覆核和拒絕移交申請的角色相當有限。若條例修訂通過後,以上的基本法律問題不但未能解決,更有機會引發更加多問題,香港這個法治之都正面對著前所未見的法治危機!

 

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.

 

面對「中國式審訊」正是港人最心寒的事,中國法院僅在前一晚,甚至是開庭前三十分鐘才透過微博發布審資料,法院官方網頁的開庭公告更從未有審訊紀錄,更遑論犯人希望有自己的維權辯護律師,陪審團,公眾列席的基本事情。劉曉波先生,王全璋先生等中國維權人士的下場正是「中國式審訊」所帶來的結局。一個沒有法治,沒有民主的國家,大家還會相信他們的法制嗎?

 

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?

 

反「引渡條例」修訂運動,迫在眉睫,民陣呼籲市民為人權企硬,同時要聰明應對特區政府和保皇黨的陰招毒計。而現階段,民陣不單需要香港人站出來,還需要全球朋友的幫忙,一起參與今次聯署,向中國共產黨施壓!

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.

民意不可欺,為香港企硬!

The will of the citizens cannot be repressed. Stand up for Hong Kong!
