100 laid off after Surprise Weekly folds

About 100 people lost their jobs when news magazine Surprise Weekly folded on Tuesday.

Publisher Leung Tin-wai - who had his arm severed in an attack at the magazine's Quarry Bay office in 1996 - said lack of advertising had prompted the closure.

'In these times of financial uncertainty we have no choice but to make this painful decision,' Mr Leung said.

Libel article predicted chop attack

A throwaway remark in a magazine article apparently predicted the attack in which publisher Leung Tin-wai had his arm chopped off.

But Mr Leung, who returned home from hospital on Monday, said yesterday he had removed the article before the assault because it seemed to be libellous.

Journalists' fund

A fund for journalists injured, killed or suffering money problems has been set up with $2 million donated after the attack on publisher Leung Tin-wai. The money, from an anonymous donor, had been mistakenly added to the reward for the capture of Mr Leung's attackers. Mr Leung has agreed to become a trustee of the fund.

Innocent bystanders

The brutal attack on veteran journalist Leung Tin-wai has shocked Hong Kong. While it may be too early to be categorical about the motives behind this vicious assault, it can scarcely be a coincidence that it came on the eve of the launch of his new magazine, Surprise Weekly.
