Surely just a prelude to tearing it up?

The question would be, what impact will this have in reality, ( other than politically pi$$ing China off)

 

 

 

I've had a look,  but I can only find evidence on one person being extradited from NZ to HK, and that was a pretty cut and dry bribery and corruption case of a NZ lawyer who was working as Deputy Crown Prosecutor in Hong Kong taking bribes...  

 

NZ has extradited no one to China, ( the first case is currently in the supreme court after the Minister of Justice was denied extradition by the NZ Courts)

China broke the 1997 rule, one country, two systems. Depends how far they will go to reprimand nations. Didnt Australia get barley shipments turned back? China is doing what the US did, want to take over and dominate. While China can exert pressure they need the globe as much as the globe needs them. It will be World War 3, but only economically, potentially.
