mainland China's Communist Party-controlled judicial system.

Put another way: absolutely corrupt and opaque judicial system that cannot be trusted to serve justice.

If the crime was committed in Taiwan. it should be investigated in Taiwan.

"Taiwan's Ministry of Justice urged Hong Kong on Thursday to keep Chan in prison and investigate him for the killing, but Lam and other Hong Kong officials have ruled that out."

If HK kept him in prison while investigating, commentators here would accuse HK of unlawful detention, authoritarianism etc.

He should go back to face the music; good call Lam.

What if there is evidence in HK? Didn't think that one through, did you?

Probably not, but if it makes you feel better to be pre-emptivelt outraged, okay.

Did you even read the article: "Chan is wanted by Taiwan authorities for allegedly killing his girlfriend during a trip to the self-ruled island last year."

I would have thought it is obvious if the crime was committed in a "self-ruled island" it could not have been committed in HK.

This does not mean there is no evidence in HK. Nice logic.

As far as I personally think this is quite obvious, this is a large group of folks (young and old) who have experienced and were satisfied with a western system of democracy, now looking down the barrel at a regime bent on controlling all aspects of human life.

Support.

You are not a victim here. We simply like the opportunity to live in a free and fair world.

Is that asking too much?

What are you on about? She is worming her way out of a mess Beijing created. If she genuinely wanted to deal with the case, the treaty would have been between HK and Taiwan NOT China. Failing this, Taiwan could have also issued an international arrest warrant and HK could arrest him and hand him over to Taiwan.

Taiwan isn't even recognised by HK or China currently, so for her to even admit to being happy the suspect will go to Taiwan is bogus. Taiwan is NOT a country to her.

She wasn't convincing before, even less now. I am guessing she is a terrible mother in her own home, and there is no way she is a respected leader.

Every one here is from country that at some point invaded china or some other land jet you think you have a right for your unlimited blind Chino-phobia.

ROTFL, bawawawahaha, 'Chino-phobia'.....LOL, look around Jon, there might be a few loose screws lying around.

China is the most phobic of all countries, it can't tolerate anything, not a cartoon bear, it even tries to suppress free speech on a sport (NBA), on foreign soil, speech that could never have reached its citizen because if its phobic wall, speech in support of people it calls its own (HKers).

Still ROTFL....

Just say NO to communism.

The Chinese communist party isn't really communist anymore. Think along the lines of authoritarian oligarchs. The CCP just wants power and control all to themselves. It's why democracy scares them, because they refuse to believe that the people of China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the rest of the world have the ability to choose who they want to be leaders and representatives. It's all about the CCP demanding that their own people (and the rest of the world) believe what the CCP wants them to believe, see what the CCP wants them to see, and hear what the CCP wants them to hear. Like mindless sheep who are to serve at the pleasure of the CCP. That's some serious bass ackwards thinking by the CCP but that's what they believe.

Government to serve the people... not people to serve the government. The CCP doesn't want to understand that.

What call. HK has him imprisoned, but he's to be released. After that, they would have no justification by which to hold him, nor agreement extradite him. Lam got lucky that this guy decided on his own to go back to Taiwan, but she didn't actively make any call, this guy dictated what was to happen.
