Cross-Border Cooperation: HK versus the PRC book
This chapter deals with a more balanced perspective in the discussion and resolution of cross-border crime jurisdiction and jurisprudential issues. Cross-district and especially cross-border crimes created enormous investigation and prosecution problems for the police, such as suspects eluding police capture by hiding in foreign countries or criminals planning a crime in foreign countries and executing the crime in China. The cross-border criminals escape local control and require international cooperation. Since 1987, People's Republic of China (PRC)-Guangdong and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) established the "Guangdong–Hong Kong border liaison annual working meeting" to facilitate mutual judicial-police assistance. The "Guangdong–Hong Kong border liaison annual working meeting" is sponsored by the Guangzhou Province Foreign Affairs and Public Security Bureau and HKSAR government. The PRC-HKSAR Consultation Committee Report on Conflict of Laws and Extradition openly acknowledged the inevitability of conflict of laws given the coexistence of two distinctly different legal systems side by side.
