Not sure how that answers my question.

There is the rule of law in HK and, according to this bill, any extradition request will be examined by HK courts with the accused able to defend, in the same way as extradition requests from other countries.

Are you implying that Chinese courts will completely fabricate evidence and that HK courts will blindly rubber-stamp it?

More generally, it's not uncommon for Western countries to have extradition treaties with countries where the justice system is more than dubious, but somehow it does not seem that people are shipped over on these countries' whim.
