How long can this situation endure ?
So Hong Kong is like every other country in the world. If you don't have an extradiction agreement/treaty with an existing country, you punish the criminal in your own court/jail. Currently, HK has such agreements with 20 countries around the world.

Don't worry about China. If the crime is big enough, Chinese troops would march into the perp's home and no one would dare to stop them. There's a Chinese garrison in Hong Kong to do just that.
