Artistes feel pity for Nicholas Tse's old 'scapegoat case' due to recent court case
Kemal Bokhary's niece Amina Bokhary cause of assaulting a Hong Kong police officer is upheld and has caused anger to the entire city. Artists are leaving messages on Weibo and expressing their doubts on the judicial system on interviews. People also compared this case with Nicholas Tse's "scapegoat case" that happened years ago and felt pity for him. Currently in Shandong filming, Nicholas did not want to respond.
As Nic's good friend Edmond Leung wrote on his Weibo yesterday: "So does that mean people can just randomly assault the HK police that we HK citizens respect most.. what now? My old buddy Nicholas Tse's case a few years ago was pretty unfair." Michael Tse received a sentence before for drunk driving, his wife Tina wrote on Weibo questioning why Amina can just get away with assaulting police 3 consecutive times. Kenneth Ma attended an event and expressed his pity for Nic's case. He said: "Should I say I have some psychological problem or some money hungry illness so I can go rob someone?"
Notes: (from wiki)
- Kemal Bokhary is a known judge in Hong Kong.
- Amina Bokhary is known to suffer from bipolar and attention deficit disorder, depression and alcohol abuse. She is often in trouble with the law assaulting police, possession of drugs, drunk driving.
- The Nicholas Tse's "scapegoat case" refers to the 2002 Ferrari car accident. He was initially claimed as the driver responsible, later ICAC investigated the case and actually 3 other men and a police officer was involved too. Nic was charged of obstruction of justice suit and the court ruled him guilty. Nic spent 14 days in prison and served 240 community service hours. At the time, many felt Nic's sentence was light, but that was the maximum for that offense.
