The UK is expected to suspend its extradition treaty with Hong Kong, according to several reports, amid a package of measures to be released on Monday by Foreign Minister Dominic Raab.It follows similar initiatives from the United States, Canada and Australia in response to China’s imposition of a strict new national security law in Hong Kong and amid growing tensions with Beijing.

Raab said he would announce the outcome of a review of the extradition agreements with Hong Kong on Monday as the situation became more and more worrying.
