Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

胸襲警察判囚三個半月

胸襲警察判囚三個半月
追加:天水圍泥頭山掘泥 可能觸犯盜竊罪




早前在網上 Time.com 見到一篇外媒的 說三道四 。。。。。





A Hong Kong Woman Just Got Convicted of Assaulting a Police Officer With Her Breast

The extent of the officer's physical injuries was not revealed


【Time.com】A court in Hong Kong convicted 30-year-old Ng Lai-ying Thursday of assaulting a police officer by hitting him with her breast during a protest on March 1.

Ng testified that during the protest the officer had reached out his arm to grasp the strap of her bag and that his hand had come in contact with her upper left breast, the South China Morning Post reports.

She told the court that she immediately yelled, “Indecent assault!”

But in his decision, the magistrate rejected those allegations, accusing Ng of lying in her testimony and instead finding her guilty of using her breast to bump the officer’s arm. “You used your female identity to trump up the allegation that the officer had molested you. This is a malicious act,” he said.

There was no word on what physical injuries, if any, the officer suffered.



中文報章也有報導《明報》

外媒關注反水客女示威者以胸襲警案:
香港女示威者使用最知名武器 ── 胸部



【明報專訊】男學生鄺振駹(20歲)與任職文員的女友吳麗英(30歲),被指參與 3月 1日「光復元朗」反水貨客示威期間,阻差辦公及襲警,兩人否認控罪受審。暫委裁判官陳碧橋早前裁決時指,鄺及吳杜撰總督察非禮吳,並裁定吳當日以胸口撞向總督察上臂的方式屬襲警。

陳官裁定,鄺及吳阻差辦公及襲警罪成,並特指吳用女性身份誣衊被總督察非禮,是非常惡毒的行為,會令總督察在職業上及名譽受到很大傷害。

《時代》網站以「一名香港女子被裁定以胸襲擊警員罪成」為題報道事件,又在報道中指「警員未有透露被襲擊後的傷勢」;英國《獨立報》則以「香港女示威者被裁定以胸襲警罪成」為題報道;《赫芬頓郵報》更以諷刺手法,指「香港女示威者使用最知名的武器——胸部,襲擊警員,被判罪成」。



原來上網又很多的外媒都有報導,其中包括:英國 的 《獨立報》

Hong Kong protester convicted of assaulting police officer with her breast


【Independent】A Hong Kong protester has been found guilty of assaulting a Chinese police inspector by hitting him with her breast, local media have reported.

Ng Lai-ying, 30, who works at a shipping company, was accused yesterday of using her chest to knock into the right arm of Chief Inspector Chan Ka-po, who was attempting to control a chaotic protest against cross-border traders in Yuen Long, Hong Kong on 1 March.

Lai-ying’s boyfriend, Kwong Chung-lung, 20, and university student Poon Tsz-hang, 22, were also found guilty of obstructing police officers and a 14-year-old pupil was found guilty of hitting Ka-po in the chest with their shoulder while the Inspector was urging protesters to move from the roadway to the pavement.

All four defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

According to the South China Morning Post, Lai-ying said in court that Ka-po had stretched out his arm to reach the strap of her shoulder bag causing his hand to touch the upper part of her left breast to which Lai-ying shouted “indecent assault.”

However, the magistrate, Michael Chan Pik-kiu, rejected her claim that the inspector had molested her and reportedly said: “You used your female identity to trump up the allegation that the officer had molested you. This is a malicious act.” He also added that it had caused great harm to the officer’s reputation.

Magistrate Pik-kiu stated that it was the police’s role to maintain law and order in a protest.

He said: ”There were two groups of people expressing different points of view at the protest. Without police officers there to maintain order, it is not surprising that there was commotion, or even clashes.“

Each of the defendants have been remanded in custody and will be sentenced on July 29 with appropriate punishments pending a series of reports, according to local media.



而原來外媒《獨立報》都是根據《南華早報》這一篇的新聞而登出


Hong Kong protester convicted of assaulting police officer with her breast

Magistrate convinced that woman struck police officer and then made up assault story


【SCMP】A participant in a protest against cross-border traders on March 1 was yesterday found guilty of assaulting a police chief inspector by hitting him with her breast.

Tuen Mun deputy magistrate Michael Chan Pik-kiu convicted Ng Lai-ying, 30, who works at a shipping company, of using her chest to bump against the right arm of Chief Inspector Chan Ka-po - who was trying to control the chaotic protest in Yuen Long that day.

A 14-year-old pupil whose name was not disclosed in open court for legal reasons was also found guilty of striking Chan in the chest with his shoulder while the officer was urging protesters to return to the pavement from the roadway on Sau Fu Street.

Ng's boyfriend, Kwong Chun-lung, 20, and university student Poon Tsz-hang, 22, were each found guilty of one count of obstructing police officers who were exercising their duties.

All four defendants pleaded not guilty to their charges.

During the trial, Ng said Chan stretched his arm to reach the strap of the bag on her shoulder, and his hand landed on the upper part of her left breast.

She said she immediately yelled "indecent assault".

But yesterday, after analysing the evidence, the magistrate rejected her claims that the inspector had molested her, and chastised her for making up the assault story.

"You used your female identity to trump up the allegation that the officer had molested you. This is a malicious act," he said, adding that it had caused great harm to the officer's reputation.

The magistrate noted that during his one-year stint in Tuen Mun Court, he had handled numerous cases in which defendants had assaulted other people who were exercising their duties, including police officers and Correctional Services Department staff.

"Those who are attacked because of their jobs should be protected," he said.

He also affirmed that the role of police in a protest was to maintain law and order.

"There were two groups of people expressing different points of view at the protest. Without police officers there to maintain order, it is not surprising that there was commotion, or even clashes."

All of the defendants, who will be sentenced on July 29, were remanded in custody, pending a series of reports to determine an appropriate punishment.



Last but not least,最後在 7月 30日早上,法官暫委裁判官陳碧橋判刑,吳麗英 被判監 3.5個月,被告獲准以 5000元現金保釋等候上訴。


【明報專訊】女文員吳麗英與學生男友鄺振駹參與「光復元朗」反水貨客示威。

吳早前經審訊後被裁定以胸口撞向總督察襲警罪成。案件今判刑,逾 70人到庭聲援。

暫委裁判官陳碧橋判刑時表示,他裁定本案被告罪成後,曾受到威嚇,令他擔心人身安全,但沒有因此而感到憤怒或害怕,故他沒有因此在判刑時加重或減輕。

吳被判監 3.5個月,鄺則被判入勞教中心。同案 14歲少年及另一男被告則分別被判入更生中心及被判 5個月零 1星期監禁。全部被告均獲准以 5000元現金保釋等候上訴。

一名學生與女文員吳麗英原否認一項襲警罪;另外兩男學生鄺振駹及潘子行各否認一項阻差辦公罪。裁判官早前裁定 4名被告全部罪名成立。



在公司蛇竇有一遍議論,有同事質疑:行兇的武器是否硬物?Another questioned 警方沒收凶器為呈堂證物?更有位頗為前衛的女性同事插嘴質疑:有沒有專家在法庭給予意見被襲擊者受到瘀傷/流血?


Anyway 吳麗英 誣衊遇襲總督擦非禮,法官可以以誣告他人入罪,但閱讀《明報》法官是裁定以胸口撞向總督察襲警罪成。以現時有限的資料,律政署的檢察官 prosecutor 是告 吳麗英 襲警,而不是告 吳麗英 誣告 。。。。。。。吧!!!


嗜悲 不是法律界,所以不知道 誣告的判刑,是否遠低於 襲警的判刑,所以律政署選擇後者!?




後記:

歐美媒體繼續報導《胸襲警察》說三道四,更有 Talk Show host Conan O’Brien jokes about Hong Kong ‘breast assault’ case (看片)






後後記:

繼女示威者被控胸襲警員入罪,天水圍青蔥的綠地,被人一車一車的泥頭傾倒,漸漸築成泥頭山,政府跨部門應對卻慢手慢腳,被人利用程序上漏洞拖得就拖,居民天天受到泥頭上的污染空氣纏擾。


更更稱奇的事情竟再發生,環保人士清理泥頭,竟然被到場的警察警告,可能觸犯盜竊罪,云云。


明報:土盟挖泥抗議遭警阻止 稱或犯盜竊罪 拘4人


【明報專訊】天水圍嘉湖山莊附近出現「泥頭山」,屋宇署本月 8日發出危險斜坡修葺令,勒令土地擁有人在一星期內,即 15日或以前展開緊急噴漿工程,並在一個月內完成噴漿工程,但至今仍未見有施工。土地正義聯盟 10多名義工今早到泥頭山上挖泥,並計劃運送到政府總部示威。

不過行動期間,多名警員在泥頭山鐵閘外阻止示威者入內,其後土地正義聯盟義工推開警員,進入泥頭山挖泥。10名警員之後增援,禁止示威者挖泥及扣起運送泥頭的手推車。

其中一名警員稱,地主已經報警,警告示威者有機會觸犯盜竊罪。警方之後以盜竊罪拘捕4人,他們現被扣留於元朗警署。

土地正義聯盟多名義工今早到天水圍嘉湖山莊附近「泥頭山」挖泥,並計劃運送到政府總部示威,期間 8人被捕,包括土盟執委朱凱迪及前來聲援的工黨立法會議員李卓人。他們全部拒絕保釋,約於下午 5時 45分離開元朗警署。

朱凱迪表示「欲加之罪,何患無辭」,認為市民面對環境被破壞,不能袖手旁觀,「如果我們今日的付出,是可以讓社會更加多人,對於香港環境保護的關注,令政府不得不做點事的話,我畀人告 100次偷竊罪,又有什麼所謂?」

他說今日的行動,原意是將非法傾倒的泥頭運到政府總部,促使當局加強打擊非法傾倒泥頭,然而行動只完成一半,他們會再尋覓機會,完成整個示威行動。

工黨李卓人就指,警方以擾亂公眾秩序罪拘捕他,解釋原因只因他「大聲喧嘩」,質疑警方濫權及使用過度武力拘捕他,「我咁大個人未畀人鎖過孖葉」。對於發展局長陳茂波指,需更多時間蒐證,他指事件兩個星期前已被揭發,質疑當局拖延執法。



名筆 葉一知 在他的 面書 有以下的 比喻:





2016年 3月 22日 明報社評:天水圍泥頭山 事態發展荒誕


【明報專訊】天水圍嘉湖山莊附近出現超級泥頭山事件,事態發展至市民不滿泥頭山破壞環境、威脅性命安全,起而行動,但有多人涉嫌盜竊等罪名被捕。

最新情况反映這類泥頭山事態荒謬一面,即使政府表示跨部門正嚴肅處理此事,呼籲「大家放心」,市民固然留意政府怎樣處理天水圍這處泥頭山,不過,同樣問題並非天水圍獨有,新界其他地區的泥頭山多的是,市民關注政府會否從政策層面着手,包括修改法例和借助科技監察傾倒泥頭,以徹底解決泥頭垃圾山的問題。

噴漿加固後可存在 壞先例或惡化堆填
天水圍這處泥頭山,由於涉及範圍愈來愈大,堆積愈來愈高,近期經居民投訴和傳媒報道後,在社會上引起廣泛關注。當局懍於輿情,由屋宇署出面,以危險斜坡為由,向泥頭山坐落的農地業主發出修葺令,要求在本月15日之前展開噴漿加固工程。

本來,就泥頭山壓頂,當局只要求噴漿加固,許多人都不以為然,因為這是變相認可並接受泥頭山,將之常態化,而且噴漿加固是否就可以確保安全,備受質疑;只是當局這個低度要求,業主也不遵令執行,限期已過,泥頭山未見加固動靜,反而堆積活動未見止息。

到昨日,歷經關注團體到場挖泥示威,鬧出「衝擊泥頭山被捕、堆填泥頭山有理」的荒誕情景之後,政府昨日傍晚公布涉及土地有關人士已經通知屋宇署,表示會在今日開展緊急噴漿工程。

另外,政府指出涉事土地旁的堆填工程未獲規劃許可,屬於違例發展,規劃監督昨日依例要求有關業主在7天限期內,中止違例填土工程。此事看來有進展,不過,解讀這兩點應對,其實從側面說明政府對於這類堆填泥頭山,基本上束手無策。

首先,按政府的公布,有關人等只要今日開展噴漿加固工程,同時在7日內停止繼續堆填,則已經形成的泥頭山就會成為既定事實,政府再也無法觸動它。這樣的處理,可視為開了一個壞先例。

因為有關人等只要做了這兩點,泥頭山就永續存在,而且相關人等毋須承擔其他法律責任,這樣的結果,釋出的信息不啻政府給同類泥頭山開綠燈,若日後更多人爭相仿效,新界私辦傾倒泥頭、然後形成泥頭山的情况,將如雨後春筍,屆時更難以規管。看來,泥頭山給新界的自然景觀帶來災難,更多人暴露在危及性命安全威脅的情况,日後極有可能出現。

長期以來,政府對在新界非法傾倒泥頭不作為,正如其他議題一樣,最終迫使市民採取行動自救。前日有關注團體成員到天水圍泥頭山,原本計劃採集數十袋麻包袋泥土,然後運到金鐘政府總部,把麻包泥土堆積起來,讓特首梁振英和官員親身體驗泥頭山是怎麼一回事,云云。

不過,團體成員與早已在場的警員爭執對峙之後,警方以「盜竊」等罪名拘捕了 8人,帶返警署,包括到場支持的一名立法會議員,他們其後都在拒絕保釋下獲准離去。

關注團體成員的行動是否構成盜竊,在法律上存在爭議。事實上,即使當局堅持落案起訴,則如何證明被捕人等有不誠實意圖,要把泥頭「據為己有」?法庭會否相信有人會盜竊事件中的泥頭、然後據為己有?

按一般情理,當局較難將被捕者入罪,然則當時的拘捕行動,就有點「攞嚟搞」了,警方固然被認為故意針對示威者,客觀上讓人厭惡的泥頭山則好像受到警方和當局「保護」。

當局此舉,觀感上把政府與警方置於不利位置,極不值得。當局不宜繼續對被捕者窮追猛打,以免處境更被動。

增人手修例引入科技 從嚴全面規管倒泥頭
天水圍嘉湖泥頭山和新界其他地區的泥頭山,實際是舊契農地土地用途沒有限制所致。要從地契着手處理這個問題,難度甚大,因為契約是政府與業主之間的事,政府不可能單方面修改契約;若未獲業主同意,強而行之,政府會被指摘強奪民產,屆時或許事態會鬧得更大。

即使如此,不等於對泥頭山破壞環境、威脅性命安全放之任之,政府應該增加人手,加強巡查,同時修訂《城市規劃條例》和《廢物棄置條例》,從嚴規管這種只顧私利、不顧公益的私營堆填行為。

另外,政府亦應研究利用科技,例如以GPS(全球衛星定位系統)監測運載廢料車輛違例傾倒泥頭垃圾,這在其他國家證明有效,引入之後,不僅可以對新界地區、對全港日益嚴重的違法傾倒泥頭垃圾行為,也可以更有效規管。



特區政府竟然找不到相關條例禁止築起泥頭山,變成默許以後可以不斷築起泥頭山,只要利用 灌漿/噴漿 技術術把基礎堅固,政府就無佢符!!!


更驚嘆何時香港特區政府保安局轄下的警察叔叔們會變成這樣的呢???

If the incident had happened in North America where some policemen are facing allegations of brutality, the media's reactions to such court decision could have been even more critical.
