They are also concerned that the Chinese government could abuse this bill to repatriate anti-Chinese figures or human rights activists from Hong Kong to mainland China.

For example, sounds like a lid opening, glass breaking, or footsteps are made by Foley artists. These people create sounds to match the scene and increase the dramatic effect.
