ABSTRACT

Hong Kong's Proposed Extradition Law Amendments [Updated June 17, 2019]   [open pdf - 675KB]

From the Document: "Two proposed changes to Hong Kong's extradition law sparked three massive demonstrations that shut down the center of the city. If adopted, the changes could make anyone--including U.S. citizens--residing in, visiting, or transiting the Hong Kong Special Administrative District (HKSAR) vulnerable to investigation by or extradition to mainland China, raising concerns about possible political prosecutions."
