PSP: two cases  involving noise related crimes

The Public Security Police Force (PSP) has prosecuted two noise related cases since January of this year, according to PSP Commissioner Leong Man Cheong.  In total, the PSP received 894 complaints regarding noise in public places, 52 of which occurred in public gardens.  Earlier, Secretary for Security Wong Sio Chak suggested the public should be more tolerant of each other when it comes to noise issues, in an apparent reference to the case of the women shot with an air soft gun when singing at Iao Hon garden. Yesterday, Wong clarified the earlier comments by saying “[When I said to] tolerate each other [I did] not mean that only one party should tolerate or protect the other party. Those people who exercise in our gardens should understand that the residents living in the nearby buildings have the right to rest.”
