Canadian and U.K. officials express concern over Hong Kong extradition changes

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt released a joint statement on Thursday regarding the proposed extradition-law changes that would allow criminal suspects captured in the autonomous region to be sent to mainland China to stand trial. “We are concerned about the potential effect of these proposals on the large number of Canadian and U.K. citizens in Hong Kong, on business confidence and on Hong Kong’s international reputation,” the statement reads. Around 300,000 Canadians live in Hong Kong and some have already expressed concern over how the changes may impact their day-to-day lives. (iPolitics)
