Hong Kong Secretary for Security John Lee has said Taiwan is in control of transferring fugitive Chan Tong-kai and reiterated that police have not established a communication channel with the island nation.

In an interview published on Wednesday, the security chief told the Hong Kong Economic Journal that in order for Chan to surrender himself he must obtain “unequivocal permission” to enter Taiwan, including a visa and inbound flight date. Lee added he is hopeful that Taiwan will green-light a co-operation mechanism between the two jurisdictions which will facilitate the transfer.

Lee cited a murder case in 2016, when Hong Kong suspects who fled to Taiwan were deported for overstaying their visa and subsequently handed to Hong Kong police at Taoyuan International Airport. They remained under Hong Kong police surveillance throughout their flight and were arrested upon landing at Hong Kong International Airport.
