Edit: Whoops, my error. Ignore if you read it. There is a formal treaty with China controlled HK, which means a provisional arrest warrant has legal standing. My apologies to all.

I am starting to think Snowden was smarter than he has been given credit for.

One minor problem.

Hong Kong's legal structure is still solidly based on the UK legal system, pre-1995. Provisional arrest warrants are not necessarily recognized in the HK legal system, since Hong Kong was handed back to China before they became part of UK law (2003). Prior to that, the use of PAW's was based on various treaties and memorandums of understanding which applied to the Crown and it's protectorates.

Edward Snowden is very smart and the powers that think they be are scared shirtless.
