[3/4] Why is it urgent for the Extradition Bill to be fully withdrawn?
2️⃣The existing “loophole” in the Extradition Law is, in fact, a strategy to preserve “One Country, Two Systems”.
“You can't have extradition between two totally antagonistic legal systems where not only the offences but the system of administering justice is so very different... The basis for extradition is that there are shared legal values and standards. We don’t have that with China,” said Dr Nihal Jayawickrama, Chairman of Justice, the local branch of International Commission of Jurists in 1991.
The situation in 1991 still applies to the present. “No agreement is better than a bad agreement.” Martin Lee, a former Legislative Council member of drafting committee of Basic Law, said Beijing has refused to accept guidelines regarding the transfer of wanted suspects, which included safeguards against execution - drawn up in a meeting of the Basic Law Drafting Committee in Shenzhen in 1986.
