"System of Hong Kong being fully maintained is this true that even if the law were to pass that if you had a right to be tried in Hong Kong, it's where you'd be tried. Well, the legislation didn't really give out coach a lot of these power. Unlike, for example, a Canadian coach with the lady from law way, if there's a similar situation happening in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong will have to turn the person over to China or another jurisdiction. We got this, this is an interesting comparison, you're noting that a Chinese business executive was arrested in Canada, on the request of the United States for the extradition is proof. Even to be rather, intricate and drawn out affair, you're saying that, that would not be the case. In Hong Kong. We're trying to be the case in Hong Kong because indicated unquote they would have the right under Daniel to allow the defendants to defend ourselves to, to the Canadian poets that the American accusation may not be accurate, so imagined that this case is happening in Hong Kong that as an attempt by the Chinese authorities to expedite an American he actually or she actually would not have those rights, that this person is currently enjoying in Canada. Would this Bill passed if it were before the legislature, well, it would because in Hong Kong, we have a situation that people like myself from the pro-democracy Cam, we had the minority in the legislature because of the design of the system we always into minority. So that's why people want universal suffrage real democracy in Hong Kong. But we didn't get that so very unpopular model as long as the government wants to push through they'll get it. I wanna ask one other question, and it's about the long term, as you know very well. Of course, the reason that Hong Kong has different rights and different judicial system than the rest of China is because that was agreed to as Britain left Hong Kong in nineteen Ninety-seven China agreed to maintain certain rights in Hong Kong for fifty years until twenty forty seven do you think in the long term that Hong Kong is going to be able to maintain its freedoms that is actually the biggest concern that we have in Hong Kong among activists, and pro democracy advocates because, for example, in the basic mole in the joint declaration between the UK and China, we were promised that we are going to have universal suffrage, real democracy. But we had waited for twenty two years and still nowhere in sight. In the meantime, a lot of these issues hooting this expedition amendment Bill attempt that would make Hong Kong more, like China, and that is our concern. We want to keep Hong Kong, a free place and.

"NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and Mary Louise Kelley something rare happened in Russia today facing a huge public outcry and protest demonstrations, the government dropped criminal charges against an investigative journalist. Police had arrested. The reporter Evonne Goolagong off late Thursday on what were widely seen as trumped up drug charges immediately, fellow journalists, including some at state supported media rallied to his cause they were joined by Russian celebrities who criticized abuse by the security services. Evan Gershkovich of the Moscow Times has been following this story. He is on the line now from Moscow. Hey there. Hi, thanks for having me. So for Americans who may not know who even given off is totally a little bit about him, and his work that might have set this chain of events in motion. So von for the past about ten years has been one of Russia's for most investigative journalists and a re. Recent story that he was working on that he did in twenty eighteen was on corruption in the funeral business. And he was currently working on a follow up story that had been doing for the past several months. And how did he come to be arrested on drug charges on Thursday afternoon? What's he filed that story he was going to meet another journalists? And in the center of Moscow to police people ran up to him grabbed him and started searching him and found drugs in his backpack that he claimed he had never seen in his life. He wouldn't sign any documents to attest to the fact that those were his drugs. And he has said that he had received warnings to not be working on this specific story in the lead up to his arrest last Thursday. So I gather over the weekend, the spilt to this dramatic moment at the courthouse in Moscow journalists and other people are gathered outside what happened the windows to the courthouse were open, given that summer and he heard. Those people shouting, his name, and he essentially broke down in tears, which becomes the main image that every newspaper news outlive TV station has run with for the past few days worth noting. How unusual this is to have the press demonstrating on behalf of one of their own in solidarity and a country that is not renowned for embracing free press? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think speaks to who Yvonne is one of the things to point out where we haven't said yet that is beyond journalists. Others joined in protests. There is a flash mob on Facebook about people changing their profile pictures to demand his freedom. The three main business dailies published a unified cover on Monday that read I am. We are von Chalamov. So there was huge public response that we also have seen around many issues in quite a while. So fast forward to today, the government has dropped ges. He's a free man. How did they explain this already signals over the weekend that the Kremlin wanted this problem to go away, Putin's popularity ratings have dropping quite some time and he has his annual call in show on June twentieth. And that police chief in announcing that the case be dropped set. There was a lack of sufficient evidence, and two key policemen will be suspended upon further. View, so they have essentially thrown a couple people under the bus so far. What's next to the protests continued to know what's next for going off tomorrow? There was set to be of March through central Moscow, in support of Yvonne and on Facebook, twenty five thousand people said they were interested in attending this March, even though he's been released on all charges dropped could go ahead. Exactly. And people are posting that they're not coming out so much for Yvonne, as for people like him, including other journalists are currently sitting in jail on essentially advocated. Trumped up charges. Sounds like you could be in for another interesting day there in Moscow tomorrow. Evan Gershkovich of the Moscow Times, thank you. Thanks, louise. The US began defensive, it's twenty fifteen women's World Cup title today with the most lopsided victory. Internment history, the US defeated Thailand, thirteen to zero before Pat and pro USA crowd in France, NPR's, Laura law that was in the stands for the game. She joins us now and the people were going bonkers on social media with each and every goals. Imagine what it was like in the stadium. Yeah, it was pretty wild. I mean people are so excited when the US for scored. And then from there it just turned to disbelief almost talk about that disbelief because they're they dominated throughout. So what stood out to you? Well, I think I mean, the people were just so excited for the US to score. I mean I was amazed by how many people were there who weren't Americans. We knew that the US it's all a bunch of tickets, stands were full of, of French people, and people from around Europe, who wanted to see this team play and the US just sort of came out swinging. I mean they they just pressed from the very beginning. They had possession the entire time and it looked like they were just taking shot after shot on on Thailand's goal. And then by starting in the ninth minute, they started making them with three goals in the first half. And they looked great. What was going on with Thailand? I mean is is a team that struggled like the context they were they were considered one of the weaker teams coming into this tournament Asia sent five teams and they were considered maybe one of the weakest ones from Asia. And so they this is not their first World Cup actually played in the twenty fifteen as well. But the US had played them once before and in that game of the US also beat them. So there wasn't huge. Expectations for this time must've players play in Tyler leagues. But at the same time, you know, the US ended up winning thirteen zero which, which is a World Cup record for for largest margin of a win. So even by those expectations was a big big lopsided win for the US who are the stars that made their Mark in this game. Well, I mean so many seven different players scored, but, but it was Alex Morgan. She scored five goals, which was just amazing. And I think coming into this she, she wanted to have a great tournament. She was at press conferences, she's been saying, no I'm not. I'm not don't consider me one of the older players yet this is going to be my World Cup. And she just came out and you know she's one, and then two and three and then and they just kept coming. And so she just she looked great. And now I think she's a strong contender for the golden boot to score the most the most goals at this, this World Cup of things. Go the US is way it's interesting. We've been hearing so much about the frustrations of women. Athletes on the team because of how the disparities they talk about in terms of pay. It's true, then the US team has made it that way they have very strategically. They are suing their employer US soccer right before this World Cup knowing that the world is watching. And so they both want the world's attention. They know that they're gonna play well at this World Cup, or at least they intend to and, and with that attention on them, they want to say, look how good we are. And they kind of want to draw attention to the idea that, hey, you know, the US team, US men's team makes more money than they do even though the US men's team just this week, lost Venezuela, three zero and they're saying, we're the best team in the world. And you still can't pay us as much as you pay them in. Why is that? Exactly. So in the half minute, we have left, what's next for the US. Well, so this is the group stage. So they've got two more games so next up as she lay on Sunday. And then now play Sweden on Thursday. So they obviously hope to win the group and I like they may. They may well do that. But from there, the knockout stage and we'll see what happens. It's NPR's Laura Walmsley in France, where this year's women's World Cup is being played. Only hope you're having a blast. I'm having a great time. Thanks so much. Eddie..
