More than 20 weeks of protests in Hong Kong have begun calling for the withdrawal of criminal extradition legislation. A girlfriend killer who triggered the extradition bill was released from prison, and Hong Kong and Taiwan governments are clashing over whether to send the killer to Taiwan, where he or she will lead the offender, and if so.

Last year, 20-year-old Chan Tong Kai, who murdered his pregnant girlfriend in Taiwan and fled to Hong Kong, finished 18 months in jail.

Because Hong Kong adopts secularism that does not punish crimes committed elsewhere, Chantong Kai served only on charges of stealing his girlfriend's money.

Shortly after his release, Chantong Kai apologized to the victim's family and Hong Kong citizens. He also said he wants to pay the price for murder charges.

[Chantongkai / Killer: I will be tried and punished in Taiwan for my mistake.]

The Hong Kong government's pursuit of the extradition law was superficial in that it would lead Chantong Kai to Taiwan for punishment for murder.

But large-scale protests sparked protests against Hong Kong opposition parties that could be used to repatriate repatriation laws into mainland China.

The Hong Kong government has asked the Taiwanese government to take over the boot, based on Chan Tong Kai's intention to surrender.

Initially suspicious of Hong Kong's political intentions, the Taiwan government changed its stance and sent police officers to take Chantong Kai directly.

This time, Hong Kong's government refused to accept that Taiwanese police officers do not respect Hong Kong's jurisdiction, making it unclear whether Chantong Kai's punishment was handed down.
