'Girlfriend Killer' released after Hong Kong protests

2019-10-23T04:27:40.340Z

A killer who triggered a massive protest against Hong Kong's "Indian Bill of Crime" was finally released because of the Hong Kong-Taiwanese government's clan around his recruits. According to Hong Kong's South China Morning Post and Mingbo, on May 23, Chan Tong Kai, who murdered his girlfriend in Taiwan in February and escaped to Hong Kong, was released from the Hong Kong Pikwook prison this morning.



The killer who triggered a massive protest against Hong Kong's "Crime Indian Bill" (repatriation law) was eventually released due to the Hong Kong-Taiwan government's silanging over his dealings.

According to Hong Kong South China Morning Post (SCMP) and Myungbo on the 23rd, Chan Tong Kai (20), who murdered his girlfriend in Taiwan and escaped to Hong Kong in February last year, was released from the pick-up prison in Hong Kong this morning.

Chantongkai bowed in front of many media gathered in prison and expressed his apology, saying, "I have made an unforgivable mistake by the family of the victim, and I want to go to Taiwan to pay the crime."

"I can't help but feel sorry for the Hong Kong community and Hong Kong people, and I hope Hong Kong people will have the opportunity to make atonement."

Chantongkai is the man who sparked protests against repatriation law, which has shaken Hong Kong society for five months since early June.

The Hong Kong government's pursuit of criminal extradition legislation in April stems from a murder in Taiwan last February.

Chantong Kai then fled to Hong Kong after murdering a pregnant girlfriend in Taiwan, dumping her body near a Taiwanese subway station.

Hong Kong, however, adopts 'slaveryism' and does not punish crimes outside the country.

Chantongkai's only application was the theft of stealing his girlfriend's money and alleged violations of the anti-money laundering law, which resulted in 29 months in prison.

The Hong Kong government wanted to deliver Chantong Kai to Taiwan, but it could not do so because it did not sign a criminal extradition treaty with Taiwan.

Hong Kong's government says it will push forward criminal extradition laws that will bring criminals on a case-by-case basis to China and other countries or regions that have not signed criminal extradition treaties, including Taiwan and Macau.

But it has been a strong backlash by Hong Kong opposition parties and civic groups.

They say the Chinese government could exploit the law to repatriate dissidents and human rights activists to mainland China, arguing that criminal Indian legislation would critically violate Hong Kong's democracy and freedom of expression.
In response, Hong Kong's chief executive, Carrie Lam and pro-Song legislators, pushed ahead with legislation stating that the loopholes in Hong Kong's judiciary system could no longer be left open.

After five months of protests in early June, millions of Hong Kong citizens poured into the streets, and fierce clashes between demonstrators and police have become a daily routine in Hong Kong.

Chantong Kai was sentenced to 29 months in prison and sentenced to 18 years in prison.

But he recently made a change of mind and sent a letter to the Hong Kong government saying he would serve in Taiwan after surrendering his murder charges.

Nevertheless, the Hong Kong and Taiwanese governments continue to grind for the treatment of Chantong Kai.

The Hong Kong government has asked Taiwan to take over Chan Tong Kai's recruits, but Taiwan officials rejected the deal, calling it a "political manipulation."

The recruits could not be acquired without formal judicial cooperation.

Taiwan President Chai Ying-One and Prime Minister Matthew Chung Hong Kong spoke at a press conference the other day, saying they were using the case for political purposes.

The Taiwan government said yesterday that it would send our police to Hong Kong to take Chan Tong Kai, but the Hong Kong government refused to say that it does not fully respect Hong Kong's jurisdiction.

Hong Kong insists that Taiwan must withdraw its ban on Chan Tung Kai because of its apparent willingness to surrender, but Taiwan's authorities have said he can apply for a visa on an individual basis.

In the end, Chantong Kai was released on the day, and it was unclear whether he would be punished for murder.

Some say that this is the result of a conflict between the Taiwan government's stance to claim jurisdiction and its view of Taiwan as part of China's territory rather than the state.
