We the people ask the federal government to Take or explain a position on an issue or policy:

Extradition Law Amendment in Hong Kong - Threat to Personal Safety and Freedom

Created on May 15, 2019

The Hong Kong Government has proposed a bill to amend the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, which will allow the Government to extradite fugitive offenders to countries or regions without Extradition Agreements with Hong Kong, including the rest of the People’s Republic of China.

The Bill will also remove the legislature’s power to scruntize such extradition arrangements, thereby centralizing the decision-making to the executives.

This controversial Bill would allow the authorities in the People’s Republic of China to arrest people in Hong Kong, or even confiscate their properties, through issuing Extradition Requests to the Hong Kong Government.

Therefore, we urge the US Government to voice opposition on such amendments, and review the existing Extradition Agreement with Hong Kong.
