He suggested the Government to strengthen the pursuit of the drug sources and the disciplinary action.

He was charged on November 6 last year for attempting to rape a 4 years and 10 months old girl in his home in Sheung Shui; At the same time, he was charged with one count of indecent assault, but the prosecution offered no evidence to prosecute.

     

    The defendant, through defense counsel, said yesterday that he committed the crime on impulse, and is now regretful who apologized to the victim and the victim's family. Due to victim's young age, Judge will not ask for a psychological trauma report, but police revealed that social workers had been following up on the victim after the case was revealed.

     

    The defendant came from Mainland China with a two-way permit to Hong Kong and could only stay until September 2006, but the defendant had been living in his daughter's home in Sheung Shui since expiration date. The defendant had five-years-old and two-years-old grandchildren. On the other hand, the victim was born in 2004, moving to kindergarten in September last year. She was the defendant's neighbor, occasionally played with defendant's grandchildren at defendant's home on weekdays.

     

    On the day of the crime, four-years-old victim returning home from school requested to go to defendant's home to play with defendant's grandsons, and the victim's mother permitted her. About an hour later, the victim crying, returning home, knocking on the door "Mummy open the door," afterwards, took off her underpants telling her mom that her "pat pat hurts" (pat pat=buttock) and the defendant had inserted his private part into her private. Thus, the victim's mother went to the defendant's home to inquire, but no one answered the door. The victim's mother called the police, upon which, the defendant was shouting in front of her home, "I'm sorry, give me a chance!" Police arrived at the scene to arrest the defendant. Under caution, the defendant admitted to use a finger to pick the victim's private part, licked her private part, and attempted to insert his private part into the victim's private part on the roof. But the victim's private part opening was too small that he failed, yet he still shamelessly said he would insert his penis if he was able to. The victim was sent to a hospital for examination later, and staffs found that there was swelling and lesion on vulva, but hymen remained intact.

     

    The defense counsel said the defendant is now remorseful for affecting two families; defense also alleged that the defendant was a caring person who adopted a girl found abandoned in the street in 1997.

The fire was very intense, but the driver was completely unaware of the fire burning in the back.
