Chan Tong-kai and his now dead girlfriend Poon Hiu-wing
They continually just lie, openly, about what started these terrorist riots in Hong Kong.
These “freedomist democracy human righters” are demanding a “human right” to travel to Taiwan and murder their girlfriends.
Interestingly, the man who kicked it all off is now agreeing to go face justice, even though the rioters succeeded in protecting him from being deported.
A man who inadvertently triggered Hong Kong’s huge protests after he murdered his girlfriend in Taiwan has agreed to return to the island to face justice, a clergyman who has visited him in prison said on Friday.
Chan Tong-kai, 20, is wanted in Taiwan for the murder of his pregnant girlfriend during a holiday the two Hong Kongers took there in February last year.
He fled back to the southern Chinese city where Taiwanese police were unable to apprehend him because there was no extradition agreement between Hong Kong and Taiwan.
The case triggered an ill-fated proposal by Hong Kong’s pro-Beijing government to ram through a sweeping extradition bill which would have allowed the city to extradite suspects to any territory, including the authoritarian mainland and Taiwan.
The proposal sparked a massive public backlash with record-breaking crowds hitting the streets.
The protests have since snow-balled as the movement seeks greater democracy and police accountability after Beijing and local leaders took a hard line and violence escalated.
Now the man who set off this tumultuous chain of events has indicated he is willing to go to Taiwan for prosecution.
Chan is currently serving a short jail sentence in Hong Kong after he was convicted earlier this year of stealing his girlfriend’s possessions during a trial in which he did not dispute murdering Poon Hiu-wing.
He is due for release next week.
Reverend Peter Koon, an Anglican clergyman, has visited him regularly in prison and said he was willing to hand himself over to Taiwanese authorities.
‘I believe he will keep his word,’ Koon told AFP, adding Chan had instructed a team of Taiwanese lawyers and had converted to Christianity in prison.
‘He expressed great regret for the victim’s family and he was very sorry for causing such trouble in Hong Kong,’ Koon added, calling Chan’s decision ‘brave’.
Taiwan maintains the death penalty for murder, but Koon said Chan was unlikely to get that if he voluntarily surrendered.
I assume he was pressured here. I see no reason why he would do it otherwise.
I can’t imagine he felt bad.
The bitch definitely did have it coming.
