That this House is concerned about proposed changes to Hong Kong's extradition law to allow the Hong Kong Chief Executive to extradite fugitives to non-contracting jurisdictions including the People's Republic of China; is further concerned that this could facilitate the extradition of pro-democracy activists, journalists, dissidents and foreign nationals including business leaders; notes that the American Chamber of Commerce has expressed grave concerns about the implications of the law for Hong Kong's status as an international financial hub; and urges the United Kingdom Government to raise the issue with the Government of Hong Kong and to consider whether these reforms have implications for the United Kingdom's existing extradition arrangements with Hong Kong.
