PLG Convenor Jason Y. Ng is quoted in Denmark's Weekendavisen in respect of the protests against the extradition bill.
Prominent commercial lawyer Kevin Yam said he was aware of high net-worth Hong Kong figures taking steps to move assets to Singapore as they matured or market conditions proved favourable.
The Progressive Lawyers Group explains the current law does not allow mainland China to extradite suspects from Hong Kong, but once the amendments are made, anyone who is considered a suspect by mainland China can be sent to the Chinese court, regardless of nationality, as soon as they set foot in Hong Kong.
法政匯思、杏林覺醒、高教公民等近 20 個傘後團體，今天在 Change.org 發起全球聯署，要求美國、英國和加拿大政府引用該國的《全球馬格尼茨基法》或相關法例，向強推《逃犯條例》修訂和暴力鎮壓和平示威的香港政府官員和親共立法會議員實施個人制裁，全面凍結這些官員、議員及其直系親屬的資產，並禁止他們入境美英加三國。
With surgical masks and goggles balanced on their faces, Hong Kongers Jay and Elise Lee take a moment to rest in an underpass near the city’s Legislative Council, its parliamentary equivalent.
Again, as in 2014, today’s protesters were primarily youths, clad in black t-shirts and chanting “Cit Wui!” (“Withdraw!”). Drawing on their experience from the Umbrella Movement, protesters quickly equipped themselves with protective gear – face masks, goggles, hard-hats – in anticipation of police batons, capsicum spray, or even tear gas and rubber bullets. Police formed three-deep defensive lines equipped with riot shields, truncheons and guns. By mid-morning, protester supply stations – well-stocked with water, foodstuffs, first-aid supplies and other necessities – were already springing up.
“With Hong Kong being a financial city and society very polarized at the moment, we don’t expect a complete or near complete participation from all schools and companies. But every little bit helps,” said Jason Y. Ng, convener of the Progressive Lawyers Group.
The Hong Kong government is pushing forward highly controversial amendments to the city’s extradition law. How will these new extradition arrangements put you at risk as a foreigner living in or planning to visit Hong Kong ? Hear what a Hong Kong lawyer has to say. Watch now.
Hong Kong’s legal sector staged a rare protest against the city’s controversial extradition bill on Thursday. Clad in back, several thousand lawyers gathered at Central’s Court of Final Appeal before marching in silence to government headquarters in Admiralty.
They observed a three-minute moment of silence at the end-point of the rally. Legal sector lawmaker Dennis Kwok said the protest – the legal sector’s fifth demonstration since the 1997 Handover – was the largest one yet. He said he estimated that 2,500 to 3,000 lawyers participated.
