Hong Kong – the China point


The authors describes how extradition orders in the UK and the USA have been contested on the basis that it may no longer be possible to receive a fair trial in Hong Kong following its return as a Special Administrative Region to the People’s Republic of China. He argues that the House of Lords and the Supreme Court were right to resist this assertion.
