It will not be wrong to say that, Hong Kong’s courts have been delivering their sentences with leniency. This can be attested by the cases below and how they were handled. To a great extent the sentences are too lenient and they tend to overlook and cover a lot of issues which aught to have been addressed. We will consider various cases and pin point how they have been addressed and the possible leniencies that are associated with them. Hong Kong law courts have been criticized by the way they handle trials and the process of criminal litigation in general. The process clearly shows leniency which makes the whole process unsuccessful contrary to what is expected. This has lead to covering of criminal practices which undermine the integrity of Hong Kong’s society. as a result, this society may seem to be having valuable morals and practices which in the actual sense if scrutinized properly, hardly exists. The immense power given to the Hong Kong courts, are the major determinant of problems experienced in sentencing cases. This has brought more harm on individuals and the society at large. There is no longer justice being practiced and what determines how a case will be handled remains in the hands of the Hong Kong courts. …
The case involved a woman and Singaporean man who were jailed for a period not exceeding two years for offences related to forgery. The woman was in possession of a counterfeit passport and her original Chinese passport was later found during a thorough body search. The man also had a counterfeit passport. The counterfeit passports showed that they were Singaporean and according to them they were lovers. The district court jailed the two whereupon, the woman was charged with an account of false representation and conspiracy by the immigration department. She was to serve a 20 months imprisonment. The man on the other hand was charged with conspiracy and possession of travel documents that were false. He was to serve a jail sentence of two years. Considering the cases, the sentencing was lenient, what if after the two years the same scenario repeats itself. Lenient sentencing will make individuals not to fear the law and such avenues can even be used by terrorists who may be planning an attack. Hong Kong courts should therefore come up with very strong measures which can prevent such cases. If the two managed to make their way through with the fake passports, imagine how many people can use the same avenue to obtain Chinese services at no extra fee. If a heavy penalty and a jail sentence of say ten years is put into place, such cases may greatly reduce. According to the department of justice, a driver who was charged with careless driving case had amendment on his case which is set to be heard again on 6th February 2012. According to the investigators, the man is believed to have intentionally run his car injuring and killing two men aged 24 and 45.
