NEWS – Ex-SCMP Editor & Student Protesters Appear At UK Inquiry Into Handover

Ex-South China Morning Post editor Jonathan Fenby and two students from the ‘Occupy the British Consulate‘ protest have appeared at the UK inquiry into the implementation of the 1984 Joint Agreement. The agreement gave rise to the Hong Kong’s 1997 handover from the British to China.

The students were invited to the UK after British MPs were barred from entering Hong Kong by the Chinese authorities. The unprecedented move sparked an ‘emergency debate’ in UK parliament.
