    Advisers to the Government have completed "air quality objective" report, proposing three phases to complete project: the first phase to improve the air with 19 approaches, including a substantial increase in the proportion of natural gas for power generation to 50 percent; advance replacement of highly polluting buses and so on. If such measures were implemented, tariffs in Hong Kong will rise up to 20 percent, and transportation fare will increase 15 percent. Government sources said it is recommended to wait until August to September, following a public consultative review, and it has not set a concrete timetable.

     

    For members of the public to see the blue sky, breath fresh air, they will have to pay a certain "price." Consultants appointed by the Government have completed a review of the report of air quality objectives, it proposes to improve the air in three phases, and believes Hong Kong should follow the guidelines published at the World Health Organization in 2006 as the goal to improve air quality.

     

    The first phase of the report put forward 19 measures to reduce emissions, including emission limit, traffic control, improve energy efficiency and so on. If the first phase of measures are implemented entirely, the expenditure will involve of about 28.5 billion dollars.

     

    The first phase on proposed natural gas as a proportion of the fuel is up to 50%, from the current 28 percent, in order to reduce power plant emissions.

     

    Government sources say that the increase in natural gas for power generation will add stress to two electric companies, and after the proposal is implemented, it is expected that electricity will be increased over 20% in separate phases. Sources expect that the two electricity companies will have to spend five to six years to add natural gas installation. The report also suggests earlier replacement of polluting vehicles, including franchised buses, as well as reorganizing bus routes. Sources say if implementation is likely to happen, it will possibly increase bus fare by 15% in one year.

     

    Hong Kong Air Quality Objectives have been in use for Twenty-two years, though report's recommendations to improve the standards is accused of only to be taken lightly, but sources say the current air pollution indicators lag behind others, and the WHO has also made clear that each place can set standards according to its environment. And consultants when developing the report only made Reference to the WHO guidelines, and the International countries and regions experience, as well as measures to make an appropriate match.

     

    As described by sources as "19 martial arts", the first stage of the improvement measures, includes reorganizing bus routes, establishing low-emission zone in Central, Mong Kok and Causeway Bay, establishing low-emission zone, and expanding railway network and other different aspects. And electronic road pricing scheme that has been discussed for many years, is recommended to be implemented in the second phase. As to having a timetable for the measures, the Government sources say they have to wait, to hear the views of the public, to observe the members of the public whether they agree with the report and the direction of development before establishing a timetable. Sources say the report will be discussed in the Legislative Council next Thursday, and the consultants will conduct a public consultation on the 20th of this month expecting to submit a report to the Government in the first half of year; the Government will be carrying out another public consultation in August to September to observe the public and to review the proposal.

    recent years robbery involving prostitutes happened from time to time

    GW-81.jpg

     

    An unemployed man claiming to raise money to have Christmas dinner with his wife and children, would not hesitate to take risks by robbing a prostitute with force on Christmas Eve last year, ransacking 900 dollars before he fled. The following day, he called the prostitute and the prostitute called the police to have him arrested. At the District Court yesterday, unemployed man pleaded guilty to one count of robbery, was sentenced to jail for 40 months imprisonment.

     

    Defendant Wong YipHung (44 years old), was charged with one count of robbery, and he immediately pleaded guilty; Wong was accused of robbing a 43 years old woman in a flat on Castle Peak Road in Cheung Sha Wan on December 24 last year, taking 900 dollars cash away.

     

    Judge Browne denounced defendant's acts of violence on fragile female sex workers yesterday in sentencing, that the defendant not only assaulted and injured the victim, he also caused danger to society and to consider the defendant's plea from poor families was not admissible. Judge Browne added that defendant must be severely punished for his act, so he would start defendant off with a 60 month sentence, but consider his guilty plea, Judge Browne reduced one-third of the sentence sentencing him to jail for 40 months.

     

    The court heard that on Christmas Eve last year, the victim worked in a unit at Castle Peak Road, during which she heard the defendant ringing the door bell, so she answered the door. The defendant initially bargained with the victim, and finally reached an agreement of a sexual service for 320 dollars. The defendant then pretended to be an ordinary customer first stripping to take a shower and then enjoyed the service provided by the victim. About half an hour later, after the defendant and the victim was done, just as the victim was waiting for payment with her back to the defendant, the defendant suddenly gripped victim's neck with his right hand from the back. The victim wished to escape, but defendant was too strong. The defendant then pushed down the victim, waved his right fist and hit the victim's left eye. Victim fell to the ground, and the defendant took the opportunity to loot valuables from a drawer, but found only 900 dollars that victim collected from that day of business. Then, the defendant just took the money and left. The victim called the police for help after being robbed, but the police failed to arrest the defendant. However, the defendant called the victim on the next day, and coordinated a meeting to apologize for his violent behavior in the robbery. So, the victim immediately reported to the police, and the police arrested the defendant when he appeared again.

     

    The defense pleaded that the defendant had been engaged in renovation work for many years, but it was difficult to get jobs last year that he had been unemployed for a period. The crime happened near Chritmas, and the defendant often had conflict with his wife due to not having money. On the day of the crime, he was anxious that he could not fulfill the promise of having a Christmas dinner with his 6 years old son and wife that he in risk of breaking the law, committed the crime.
