A jobless Mexican woman was jailed for 16 days for stealing and desecrating a Hong Kong flag and a national flag at Po Lin Monastery on Lantau. La Lu Na Maya, 28, stole the flags from a temple on April 5. The next day a security guard at the monastery saw her stomping on them and throwing them into an incense burner. Maya told Magistrate John Glass in Tuen Wan Court that she was sorry.
