Cross-Border Crime in Hong Kong Book Launch Ceremony
A ceremony for launching the Cross-border Crime in Hong Kong written by Wayne Walsh SC
This new text will offer practical guidance to legal practitioners, law enforcement authorities and others including financial institutions, as well as to foreign practitioners and authorities, when dealing with various aspects of cross-border crime with a Hong Kong nexus.
The constitutional background to cross-border cooperation arrangements under the Basic Law and the effect of international bilateral or multilateral arrangements applicable to Hong Kong are highlighted, in particular relevant United Nations Conventions and ordinances relating to cross-border offences, anti-terrorism, anti-money laundering and human rights issues.
This title explores the role of the Central People’s Government in HKSAR’s arrangements for legal cooperation in criminal matters with foreign States. The absence of arrangements with other parts of China for rendition and mutual legal assistance and the proposals for new arrangements are covered.
