Hong Kong: Extradition bill that sparked protests formally withdrawn

Гонконг, Hong Kong
окт. 23, 2019 в 13:16 GMT +00:00 · Опубликовано

Hong Kong Secretary for Security John Lee Ka-chiu announced the withdrawal of the previously suspended extradition bill that sparked massive protests in Hong Kong.

"As the public discussed differences on the Bill, in the event of a contradiction in the community, the Government has decided to suspend the amendments after a study and review," he declared.

Democratic Party member and legislative councillor Kwok Ka-ki reacted to the withdrawal: "Mr. Leung [President of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong] didn't exercise his duty to allow legislator to hold John Lee to be responsible and to answer to us. Is there anything wrong by the government should they come and apologise, and should anyone including themselves should resign in order to take responsibility. But unfortunately what we have witnessed, not only the violence on the street, but the violence within the Legislative Council chamber and violence from the system."

Hong Kong has seen widespread protests since the city's legislature proposed a bill that would allow citizens to be extradited to mainland China for trial. Since the withdrawal of the bill, protesters adopted a wider range of grievances with activists calling for investigations into corruption, police brutality and greater democratic freedom.
