大律師指港法庭把關力有限

政府突然修訂《逃犯條例》,將原本未能與香港達成長期移交協議的中國大陸,容許以單次個案式移交,「明渡陳倉」開缺口的修例惹來法律界怒轟。法政匯思成員昨亦有上街遊行,直指修例後遺影響深遠,召集人大律師吳宗鑾強調一旦配合稍後《基本法》23條立法,港人有機會可能因為觸犯23條而被送返內地受審,呼籲巿民留意修例細節,「內地一日未有一個公平審訊、一日司法制度未完善,我哋都唔應該咁輕易將(引渡逃犯)門戶打開」。

劉鑾雄申覆核恐遭疑犯利用 張國鈞料法庭不接納

立法會將於本周三(3日)就《逃犯條例》修訂草案進行首讀,早前被澳門法院裁定行賄及洗黑錢罪成的華人置業前主席劉鑾雄,今(1日)就修例尋求司法覆核申請的許可。法政匯思成員、大律師楊嘉瑋表示,一般情況而言,司法覆核案不會影響或叫停修例,除非申請人向法庭申請禁制令,以暫緩立法會辯論,惟此案有機會成為將來被引渡人士向法庭申請人身保護令的理由。

【移交逃犯】8專業團體都遊行 法政匯思斥修例褫奪立會監管權

8個專業團體學術,包括自由學者聯盟、放射良心、進步教師同盟、法政匯思、保險起動、思言財雋、社工復興和民主進步會計師,今日都有參與民陣的遊行,反對港府修訂《逃犯條例》。法政匯思召集人李安然表示,新修訂的法例將會褫奪立法會的監管權,證明政府所說的「保障只會更多、不會更小」的說法並不正確。此外,雖然李家超經常說法庭會把關,但法庭只會審視外地提交的證據,是否構成表面證據,只要構成,法庭就會同意引渡,顯示這個把關作用根本不足。

Jason Y. Ng on Hong Kong’s Extradition Proposal

Move over, national anthem law. Make room, anti-subversion bill. Here comes the government’s latest legislative menace: a fundamental policy shift in fugitive transfers between Hong Kong and mainland China. This time, the threat to personal security is bigger, more real, and has the potential to affect a broader range of people than any other government bill we’ve seen in recent years.

2019年2月12日,香港特別行政區政府(「特區政府」)保安局向立法會保安事務委員會提交修訂香港法例第503章《逃犯條例》以及第525章《刑事事宜相互法律協助條例》的建議(「該建議」)。若該建議修訂獲通過,特區政府將能夠移交刑事案件的疑犯至尚未與香港簽訂正式雙邊引渡協議的司法管轄區(「非協議地區」),包括中國內地、台灣和澳門 (On 12 February 2019, the Security Bureau of the Hong Kong SAR government submitted a proposal (the “Proposal”) to the Legislative Council’s (the “Legco”) Panel on Security to amend the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance (Cap. 503) (“FOO”) and the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Ordinance (Cap. 525) (“MLAO”). If adopted, the amendments will allow the SAR government to surrender suspects in criminal cases between Hong Kong and jurisdictions with which the SAR has not entered into a formal bilateral extradition agreement (“non-contracting jurisdictions”), including mainland China, Taiwan and Macau).
