Hong Kong citizen Chan Tong-kai is believed to have killed his girlfriend in Taiwan in 2018. Recently, Chan told that he wanted to go back to Taiwan to turn himself in. As there is currently no direct contact window between Hong Kong and Taiwan, Premier Su Tseng-chang, criticized the Hong Kong government, saying the case should not be pushed back and forth and that Taiwan does not allow murderers to come to Taiwan as "independent tourists."
Hong Kong citizen Chan Tong-kai stands accused of murdering his girlfriend in Taiwan in 2018. Chan has reportedly said he wants to turn himself in in Taiwan, but this is unconfirmed due to a lack of an official contact window between Taiwan and Hong Kong. A report issued by the ROC Control Yuan in September says the ROC's Ministry of the Interior, National Police Agency and Criminal Investigation Bureau are prepared for Chan to turn himself in. On the 5th, Interior Minister Hsu Kuo-yung told lawmakers he has not received any information on the case.
(What information have you actually received? Have you been contacted by a lawyer? The minister doesn't know.) There are official channels. There has not been any contact.
So what you're saying is, you have not had any formal conversations about him wanting to turn himself in. I have not. Neither has the National Police Agency. Neither has the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
ROC Premier Su Tseng-chang, meanwhile, told the media the Hong Kong government needs to stop pushing the case back and forth.
He wants to surrender in Taiwan. Hong Kong has a government. Taiwan has a government. A good conversation can be had. He can't possibly come here as an independent tourist. We would not allow a murderer to enter Taiwan and come and go as he pleases. So, the Hong Kong government doesn't need to push the case back and forth like this. Our government will handle the case in accordance with the law.
Su says murderers are not allowed to come into Taiwan as "independent tourists" and the government will proceed in accordance with the law if Chan really surrenders himself in Taiwan.
