    Not followed this children's book case too closely. As I understand it it is a story that 'could' be interpreted as referring to the current policitcal situation in HK/China. Is that correct or was there proof that if was intended to indoctrinate children specifically?

    It's an allegory of the protests, police are wolves, the villager sheep are the HK people...doesn't take much to rise to "sedition" apparently...

    The District Court heard that the three had fed information to the triad’s Tsuen Wan faction about a planned enforcement action on a betting establishment. The three also plotted to hire “actors” pretending to be gamblers in the den to be arrested.
    The agent then met the three officers at the triad boss’s request at Tsuen Wan Police Station, where the defendants gave instructions on how to make the staged operation look realistic and set the criteria for selecting the right actors.
    Police later called off the operation and arrested the three officers. A subsequent inquiry found the accused had falsified internal records about the investigation into the illegal den.
    Passing sentence, Lo acknowledged that the three officers did not cause substantial damages to the judicial system’s integrity as the police operation was cancelled, and that they did not attempt to achieve their goal using threats or intimidation.

    “The present case occurred possibly because the defendants stepped outside the bounds of the law out of momentary recklessness,” Lo said.m

    “I honestly believe that each of the defendants, having served the police force for long periods of time, is an outstanding officer. They committed the present offence because they slipped up and crossed the line. The offence is out of character.”

    Not a jail sentence but harsh punishment for sure..


    A secondary school in Tsuen Wan confirmed late on Monday that it had suspended 14 pupils for three days, saying that they disrespected the national anthem and emblem by failing to turn up for a flag-raising ceremony.

    St Francis Xavier's School said that besides failing to attend the assembly on Wednesday, the pupils had "committed disrespectful acts", without providing further details.

    Media reports said some of the pupils were having breakfast in the covered playground when the national anthem began to play.

    Speaking on Commercial Radio on Tuesday, Education sector lawmaker Chu Kwok-keung said class suspension was a "quite serious" penalty.
