  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam still believes she did the right thing in trying to pass extradition bil” – below is their description.

    Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam said she still stands by trying to pass the controversial extradition bill that sparked months of social unrest in 2019 and polarised Hong Kong society, because she still believes the bill is necessary. Speaking to the South China Morning Post, Lam said if she had to do it over again, she would take a different approach, taking more time to “explain and engage” the public about the bill. Lam admitted the government has more work to do to improve communication with Hong Kong residents. She also sought to reassure residents that their rights and freedoms would be safeguarded, even with the implementation of the National Security Law that the central government in Beijing imposed on the city in late June.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
