§ 34. Mr. James Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement concerning the extradition of Police Superintendent George Godber to Hong Kong and, in particular, the charge which is made against him.
§ Mr. Ennals
Mr. Godber was returned to Hong Kong on 6th January. The Hong Kong Government had applied for his return under the Fugitive Offenders Act, on charges of corruptly receiving 25,000 Hong Kong dollars from a police officer named Cheng, and of conspiring to accept a bribe to secure Cheng's appointment as a divisional superintendent.
