Writer Yu Xiaoyan filed a High Court writ on Wednesday against Synergis Management Services for alleged security failures she said allowed burglars to tie her up and take items including two watches once owned by Sun Yat-sen from her home in Green Crest, Yuen Long, last year. The writ claims guards failed to patrol properly and that the anti-burglar system and CCTV were not working properly.
