Hong Kong news items - concerning Ugandan inmates in HK
2016 and 2015


April 23: Yesterday morning I was at the High Court to support a 48-year old husbandless mother-of-five Ugandan woman. A most sympathetic judge and one of HK's top barristers could do little - because of HK's strict guidelines - to save her from a heavy sentence for drug trafficking. After a reduction of one third for pleading guilty and another one third for good behaviour, she will serve about 9 years. She was in distress before, during and after the trial - her tears kept flowing.... another victim of economic desperation in Uganda exploited by HK's Nigerian Drug Lords based at Mirador Mansion in Tsim Sha Tsui. As the barrister said in his appeal for mitigation "it beggars belief that the (HK) authorities have not taken action to stop the Mirador Mansion gang".
