Hong Kong’s Paris Hilton
The news in Hong Kong the last few days has been fun to watch. The niece of a prominent judge named Amina Mariam Bokhary was pulled over by the police for drunk driving and during the course of the encounter she slapped the cop.
Turns out this isn’t the first, but the third time this incident has happened with Ms. Bokhary. Given the 3rd offense and the assault on a police officer one could imagine a little jail time for the Hong Kong socialite.
The presiding judge suspended her sentence and gave her a HK $8000 (US$ 1000) fine. For those not familiar with Hong Kong, that was probably the equivalent of her drink tab for the evening.
Due to the public outcry the case was reviewed and, not surprisingly, upheld. Everyone seems to be asking if she were not the niece of a prominent judge, would she be spending some months behind bars?
Take a look at the video clip. Even though the commentary is in Chinese, Bokhary speaks in English, and well, the actions say it all. Pay extra attention to the way the cop reacts after being slapped.
Definitely NOT the guy I want backing me up in a street fight!
