    A female clerk from a design company was overwhelmed by her boyfriend committing suicide that she became a pathological shopping maniac using her credit card over spending 3000000 dollars on brand-name goods. In order to pay for credit card bill, she embezzled six million dollars from her company and transferred it to her older brother's three bank accounts, but the two siblings were arrested together eventually. Police found more than 200 pieces of brand-name handbags, clothes and watches in their apartments. Earlier, the two recognized the crime with theft and conspiracy to laundry money, a total of 31 charges in District Court, and they were sentenced to three years ten months and two years and ten months respectively.

     

    The trial judge said yesterday in sentencing that the defendant's act had breached the company's good faith belonging to a serious offense, as for spending all the money she obtained on luxury items proved her crime came out of greed. Since there was no other important factors for plea, yet taking into account of her depression and pleaded guilty to the charges in honest, the judge reduced some sentences.

     

    The first defendant, Zhou Li-Shi(age 32) and the second defendant Zhou Zhi-gang (age 36), were both brother and sister. They were charged in November 2006 to June 2008 period for dishonest misappropriation of transferring money from a Japanese printing company which the company used for to pay customers, into the second defendant's account, each month transfer ranging from 100000 to 200000 dollars, involving 6.05 million dollars.

     

    The defense pleaded that Li-Shi had been in a relationship with her boyfriend for 5 years, but her boyfriend had a mental breakdown that he committed suicide in August 2006. This incident unfortunately caused Li-Shi to develop depression. Since then, she went on a shopping spree in order to heel her trauma with a shopping desire. But unexpectedly, shopping became the source of committing crime. The defense also pointed out yesterday that both defendants income were not high, and they had depleted all stolen money, but the female defendant was willing to pay in separate payments, who also was willing to repay with stolen goods first.

     

    Female defendant, Zhou Li-Shi was employed in a subsidary company of a printing design company in 1999 as a clerk. The manager of the company received a customer complaint that the company failed to repay a sum of 700,000 U.S. dollars in June last year, and Zhou lied to avoid liability when the manager confronted Zhou. In September last year, Zhou gave a letter repenting for stealing 390,000 U.S. dollars (approximately HK 3,049,000) from the company, and is willing to repay the sum in 26 years. The company verified with the bank and more than six million Hong Kong dollars was indeed stolen, so the manager called the police. After the two siblings were arrested, Zhou Li-shi admitted to fabricating receipts 30 times because of credit card debt by transferring 1000000 to 200000 dollars each time to her older brother, ZHOU Zhi-gang's three bank accounts, and then instructed his brother to withdraw 20000 dollars in cash through the ATM everyday to spend. She once gave 30000 to 40000 dollars to her brother to buy a used Toyota car, and they also bought a unit in public housing in Fu Shin Estate in Tai Po for 194,000 dollars to their retired parents. When police went to the premise the two defendants rented in Tai Po Center, they uncovered over a hundred pieces of brand-name goods, including LV, Chanel and Bottega Veneta, such 47 brand-name handbags, watches and accessories, 160 T-shirts, 73 pairs of shoes, 68 T-shirts and 48 pieces of toys, that the place was very much like a second-hand shop warehouse.

    Capsule vending machine culture has spread from Japan to Hong Kong for many years. Though one tiny capsule only costs 5 to 10 dollars, the smalls toys of the capsule however, are often combined in sale in multi-series that many young people in pursuit of the full complete set of products will not hesitate to spend more for all. Wong Kwan-Yu with 3 to 4 years habit of getting capsule has spent nearly 2000 dollars each month in her most fanatical phase for capsule. But due to having only 400 to 500 dollars pocket money at the time, she would borrow from family and friends. She said, "Because I'm attracted to the toys. And the process of getting the capsule is mysterious and seems to be addictive", however, once she finds out capsule's influence to pollution and the environment, she frankly says that she will reduce the number of turning capsules in the future, and learning to use discarded capsules. "Girls can use capsules as storage for jewelry, boys can put small parts of toys in the capsules".

     

    90 percent of the respondents of the survey are primary and secondary school students, with half of them having fifties and less for monthly pocket money. Survey shows that although the 95 percent respondents indicate that expenditure for capsules is within their financial affordability, but there is still 15 percent of respondents spending over 50 dollars for capsule in the last month, and more than 25 percent get capsules for over ten times in the last month.

    Younger generation's attitude towards sex is increasingly open, to which a 8 months pregnant "14 years old mom" in Hong Kong shows off her pregnancy photos online, describing her feelings about teenage pregnancy, appearing to be proud of what she did. Some social workers have believed her practices have conveyed a bad message to young people, but a lot of netizens praise her to be brave showing they have fuzzy values and regardless of the consequences, therefore social workers worry that such kind of online information will push back young people's moral boundary, misconstruing that there is nothing wrong with teenage pregnancy.

     

    "Fourteen-years-old mother" posts many pregnancy photos in a discussion forum and immediately attracts a large number of Internet users engaging in a heated discussion. Her guestbook and personal blog has been reposted in a number of discussion boards, becoming a hot topic on the internet, but her GuestBook and blog has been deleted yesterday.

     

    Some netizens criticize her for showing off teenage pregnancy, and also question her ability, that she does not have capability to care for the next generation. Also, some netizens search this unmarried mother information, and discover that the girl was born in June 1994, who is only fourteen years old this year, and is studying in a middle school at Fanling. The day before yesterday, she starts a topic posting a few photos taken by herself in discussion forum with title, "don't know if anyone knows me, come look at my pregnancy photos!" From photos background, it is estimated the photographs are taken inside "Mother's Choice". In the photo, the girl is only wearing bras, exposing her round pregnant stomach. The girl wrote, "little girl, grow up quickly! Hehe, I am eight months pregnant, I have never taken such sexy photos as old as I grow!" Spoken as if she's proud of her pregnancy, and not feel any shame. She discloses that she have been to ultrasound and knows the gender of the baby to be a female. Baby's father refuses to have partial responsibility, and he is not sentenced to community service for having sexual intercourse with an underage girl.

     

    It is learned that the girl lives in North District. She drops out of school a year ago, and once has an offender being sentenced to Juvenile Home. In her personal blog, she admits, "What have I never done before, smoking, drinking, taking drugs, day to day going to bars if not clubs, everyday seeing some unfamiliar people, right now even becoming a fourteen-years-old mother, what else can surprise me!", she says she has quitted many bad habits for the sake of her baby, and hopes to personally raise her daughter into a grown person. She is currently awaiting for court decision.

     

    This newspaper has called "Mother's Choice" for inquiries, and Director of Tsim Sha Tsui's Support Center, Ms. Chan says that they're following up this case. She believes that this girl is just like young people nowadays putting personal data available on the Internet to make herself into a victim. She also quoted the girl saying she doesn't know her personal remarks are reposted.

     

    Chui Yat-hung, Director of Student Counseling Network of Polytechnic University says, the new generation has an open attitude towards sex, and the internet is filled with substantial pornographic information which confuses the youths' values making them impossible to distinguish between right and wrong. He says that many young people tend not to be responsible when voicing out online, and they don't carefully consider. For those who commend and support an minor mother for showing off pregnancy to be even brave will strengthen that adolescent pregnant female the wrong ideas. Chui adds that though discussions have yet to cause other youths to follow suit immediately, it will however push back their moral boundary, thinking falsely that there is nothing wrong with teenage pregnancy, and they will be vulnerable to temptation in the future.

     

    A Police spokesman sayes the Commercial Crime Bureau Technology Crime Division is pursuing the case now. Police also reminds the public must use the internet lawfully and responsibly, and all laws applicable to the real world can also be applicable in the virtual world. Anyone who has sexual intercourse with underage girls may have violated the laws of Hong Kong 200th chapter "Crimes Ordinance" in regards to The offense of unlawful sexual intercourse.
