Topic

The concept of One Country, Two Systems envisaged HKSAR would operate its own system of juridical cooperation with other places following resumption of Chinese sovereignty. New treaties and arrangements were put in place to facilitate cross-border investigation and prosecution of serious crime after 1997. The Extradition Bill of 2019 aimed to widen Hong Kong’s ability to cooperate, including with other parts of the PRC. But the Bill led to widespread public protest and was withdrawn. The NSL was promulgated by the Central Authorities in response to the protests. Various foreign countries suspended their cooperation arrangements with Hong Kong in response to the NSL. This webinar will focus on the impact of these developments on the investigation of transnational crime, including fraud.
