As of midday, a citywide manhunt was still under way for the burglar and an accomplice who helped him climb onto the first floor of the 20-storey Piccadilly Mansion on Po Shan Road shortly before 4am. According to police, the burglar scaled the building up a drainpipe and climbed into the victim’s fourth-floor flat through the window of a toilet while his accomplice acted as lookout on a nearby hillside.Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world?

The break-in came to light when the tenant was woken up by the sounds of the burglar ransacking her 2,499 sq ft flat. “The struggle erupted when she … found a black-clad burglar in the study room,” a police source said. “The culprit managed to run off during the scuffle and ran into a toilet connected to the study room, from which he climbed out the window to escape.” Police arrived after receiving a call from her at about 4.07am. Officers scouted the area, but no arrests were made. According to police, the two suspects are about 1.7 metres tall. Jewellery and watches initially estimated to be worth HK$2.7 million were stolen along with nearly HK$4,000 in cash. Detectives from the Central criminal investigation unit have checked security camera footage to gather evidence. Hong Kong police arrest three during bungled burglary in New Territories On May 2, two mainland Chinese men believed to be behind a series of burglaries in the New Territories were among three people arrested at the Tuen Mun scene of a bungled break-in during which two police officers drew their guns. Officers are investigating whether the two mainland suspects had ties to a notorious rural gang operating in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region. Both were surnamed Wei, according to police, a name shared by many villagers there. According to police, 63 mainlanders who entered Hong Kong illegally were arrested in connection with various crimes last year, up 53.7 per cent from the year before. In 2020, police handled 2,095 reports of burglary across the city, down 12.5 per cent from 2,394 cases in 2019.This article Burglar escapes upscale Hong Kong flat with HK$2.7 million in valuables, cash after struggle with female tenant first appeared on South China Morning PostFor the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2021.
a day agoChinese more trusting of government months into pandemic, survey findsChinese became more trusting of the government several months into the pandemic, according to a survey conducted by researchers from China, Canada and Sweden. Nearly 20,000 people were polled across 31 provinces or administrative regions in mainland China from April 22 to 28 last year. The survey was conducted weeks after the city of Wuhan in Hubei – where the first cases of the coronavirus were reported – emerged from a strict and unprecedented lockdown that lasted more than two months.Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world?

Some 49.2 per cent of respondents said they trusted the national government more since the outbreak, while just 3.3 per cent trusted the government less. For 47.6 per cent, the trust level remained the same. But the survey also found that there was less trust in the lower levels of government. “The authors find that Chinese citizens have an overall high level of satisfaction, but that this satisfaction drops with each lower level of government,” the researchers said in a peer-reviewed paper published in the Journal of Contemporary China. They found 30 per cent of respondents said they had more trust in the local government, while 63 per cent said their trust level was the same, and 6.3 per cent had less trust. Beijing has faced heavy international criticism for its early handling of the outbreak, including over the death of whistle-blower doctor Li Wenliang from Covid-19 in February last year, after he tried to sound the alarm about the new virus but was silenced by the authorities. However, the survey results suggest that months later, the authorities were being seen more favourably within mainland China, where Covid-19 has now been largely brought under control. The Chinese book at the bottom of the Sars bioweapons claims Led by Cary Wu, assistant professor of sociology at York University in Canada, and funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the researchers recruited more than 600 students from 53 universities in China to conduct anonymous online interviews. In Wuhan, 52.8 per cent of respondents said they trusted the national government more than they did before the pandemic, and only 3.5 per cent trusted it less. But 8.9 per cent of respondents in the city were less trusting of the local government. “Overall, we see a negative association between Covid-19 cases and trust/citizen satisfaction. But in Wuhan/Hubei, respondents were highly satisfied with government performance, especially when they compared the Covid-19 situations in other countries,” Wu said, in a written reply to the South China Morning Post. The average score for satisfaction with the government at various levels was 3.8 or higher on a scale of 1 to 5, the paper said. Respondents were asked about satisfaction with information dissemination during the pandemic and the delivery of essentials to people’s homes when they were unable to leave during lockdowns. For information dissemination, 89 per cent said they were satisfied with the national government, but that dropped to 77 per cent for the provincial authorities, 74 per cent for city governments, 70 per cent at the county level, and 67 per cent for community or village authorities. That pattern was also seen for delivery of essentials, with 81 per cent satisfied with the national government but only 58 per cent satisfied with their community or village authorities. Age and education also affected the level of satisfaction, with lower levels of satisfaction recorded among those who were highly educated to degree level and aged below 30, according to the survey. The researchers also looked at how factors such as state propaganda, Communist Party membership and the Confucius culture that puts national and collective interests above those of individuals affected the survey results. They found that party members or people who got most of their information from state media were more satisfied with the government, as were those who believed in collectivism.More from South China Morning Post:Wuhan party chief on track to become Hubei governor after winning plaudits for handling of Covid-19 outbreakThe coronavirus films showing people in Wuhan at its darkest hour, and the human side of China’s fight against the pandemicThis article Chinese more trusting of government months into pandemic, survey finds first appeared on South China Morning PostFor the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2021. headtopics.comRead more: Yahoo Singapore »
