Police who foiled an attempted truck hijacking in Kimberley Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, two years ago have been commended for their bravery by the Court of Appeal. Mr Justice Michael Stuart-Moore, with Mr Justice Azizul Suffiad, yesterday singled out five officers for facing down and arresting the three would-be robbers, one of whom had a loaded gun. The court also reduced by two years the 12-year sentence handed to one of the robbers, Chan Kwok-wai, whose counsel, Patrick Loftus, had departed from solicitors' instructions, resulting in his client receiving a reduced discount for his guilty plea.
