On wrong horse

THAT was an incredible story regarding racehorse trainer Brian Kan's stolen car. First he called Police Commissioner Mr Li Kwan-ha who, in spite of regular visits to Guangdong and assurances that the stolen car situation was well in hand, could not assist.

Kan then called his ''resourceful connections'' who not only found that his car had been stolen by a smuggling group from Sha Tin, but actually recovered the vehicle. How embarrassing for our boys in blue.

Kan also discovered that his car had been sold to the military who obviously did not have a clue that his brand new $1.7 million right-hand drive Mercedes had been stolen from Hongkong.

Is this the same military who will be let loose in Hongkong in 1997? I think we should be told. IAN STEWART Hongkong
