Hong Kong protests: Leader Carrie Lam defiant on extradition plan

Hong Kong Protests

The march was seen as a major rebuke of Ms Lam, who has pushed for the amendments to be passed before July.

Critics of the bill say it will expose Hong Kong residents to China’s deeply flawed justice system, and lead to further erosion of judicial independence.

 

Supporters say safeguards are in place to prevent anyone facing religious or political persecution from being extradited to mainland China.
