Hong Kong says mur­der suspect wants to sur­ren­der to Tai­wan

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

HONG KONG — Hong Kong’s leader said Satur­day the mur­der suspect whose case in­ad­ver­tently helped ig­nite the city’s protest move­ment wants to sur­ren­der to au­thor­i­ties in Tai­wan.

Car­rie Lam told re­porters that Hong Kong’s gov­ern­ment would “ac­tively fol­low up on” a let­ter she re­ceived from Chan Tong-kai re­quest­ing help to give him­self up.

Chan is wanted by Tai­wan au­thor­i­ties for al­legedly killing his girl­friend dur­ing a trip to the self-ruled is­land last year. He was not sent back to face charges because there’s no ex­tra­di­tion agree­ment.
