Kathmandu, July 9 (Nepal Niti)-
Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has said the controversial bill that would have allowed extradition to the Chinese the mainland is dead. At a press conference on Tuesday, Ms. Lam said the government’s work on the bill had been a total failure.
But there are still lingering doubts about the government’s sincerity or worries whether the government will restart the process in the Legislative Council, Ms. Lam told reporters. So I reiterate here, there is no such plan. The bill is dead.
Bonnie Leung of the Civil Human Rights Front, which has organized demonstrations, said further protests would be held until the Hong Kong government meets five key demands. These include the full withdrawal of the bill and the dropping of charges against those detained during recent protests.
