Judge’s Niece Jailed for 6 Weeks for Police Assault

A Hong Kong judge’s niece was ordered to spend six weeks in prison after violating terms of the year’s probation she received for assaulting a police officer.

“It is clear a caution or fine is no longer sufficient,” Magistrate Amanda Woodcock said today when ordering Amina Mariam Bokhary jailed. Bokhary’s probation, on her third conviction for police assaults, was criticized by law enforcement groups and others in Hong Kong for being too lenient.
