(The Diplomat/Associated Press) Despite heavy protests from Hong Kong activists to scrap off the extradition bill, the Hong Kong government decided not to withdraw the bill. Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam defended the legislation by remarking that the bill is crucial for Hong Kong to prevent Hong Kong from becoming a place that would attract fugitives. Opponents of the bill argued that the bill could potentially result in unfair trails for critics of the Chinese Communist Party. <Accessed 2019-06-21>
