Hosni Mubarak

The deposed Egyptian leader found his visit to Cairo's police academy building not as pleasant as his first, six months ago. He returned to find his name, which had adorned the building, removed, his lectern replaced by a metal cage and his suit swapped for prison overalls. Worse still, his security forces and judiciary were to decide his culpability at a trial that could lead to his execution.

Tong Wai-ming

The 50-year-old barrister was found guilty of one count of drug possession and fined HK$4,000. He had pleaded not guilty. Tong, who has more than 30 years' experience of the law, was arrested in February at a Yau Ma Tei bar and accused of having a paper packet of powder containing 0.11 grams of ketamine and a straw with traces of the drug.

Wong Ching

The high profile mainland investor in Asia Television became the subject of a probe by the Broadcasting Authority into an erroneous report on the death of former president Jiang Zemin . The authority said there was 'public concern over the role of Wong Ching in ATV's management'. Wong claimed the first time he learned of the report was when he saw it on television and he denied being the source of the false report.
