Hong Kong top executive to call time on extradition bill after months of unrest
After months of protests and unrest in the city that caused economic problems and business disruptions, Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam is finally about to dispatch the extradition bill that started it all.
But the locals had little to no reaction hearing the latest development from the distraught government, making it appear unclear whether the demonstrations will finally come to an end or not.
Sources from the government said that the announcement of trashing the extradition bill will take place on Wednesday. Under duress, the top leader could only do so much after the massive protests escalated to a national security and sovereignty issue for China.
The Extradition bill was among the five demands of the protesters when asked for their side. But Carrie Lam said that the bill was neither implemented nor dispatched. It was also reported in the past that the Chinese government rejected Lam’s proposal to drop the bill.
Moreover, China denied meddling in Hong Kong’s situation, but warned countless times that it would make necessary actions once it becomes a national security issue.
