The case of a young Hong Kong man, Chan Tong-kai, accused of murdering his girlfriend in Taiwan a year ago before fleeing back to Hong Kong, was held up originally as an example of why an extradition Bill was needed.
Friday's lighthearted protest came as pro-democracy organisers said they planned to stage a major march on Sunday despite police determining it illegal. He was not sent back to face charges because there's no extradition agreement.
The unrest was sparked by a now withdrawn bill which would have allowed extradition to mainland China for trial in Communist Party-controlled courts.
Now the man who set off this tumultuous chain of events has indicated he is willing to go to Taiwan for prosecution.
He is due for release next week.
He will spend some time with his family after being freed and then travel to Taiwan, although the report said Chan's plans would depend on how Taiwanese authorities handle his case.
Chan, who is now serving a prison sentence for money laundering in a Hong Kong jail, "requested the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government to assist him in making the relevant arrangement", according to the statement.
Taiwan maintains the death penalty for murder, but Koon said Chan was unlikely to get that if he voluntarily surrendered.
