Actress Sylvia Chang Ai-chia, whose young son was rescued from kidnappers after a 10-day ordeal last month, told yesterday how the drama had shaken her faith in Hong Kong. Chang, 45, said she believed the SAR was not as peaceful as it had once been. 'Our family are not wealthy people but we still faced this unfortunate incident,' she said in a statement. 'Should we be more concerned about the social problems facing Hong Kong?' Her son Oscar was abducted near his school in Kowloon Tong on July 3. The boy, then aged nine, was freed after police officers laid an ambush at a Mongkok hotel on July 12. Three alleged gang members were arrested and have been charged. No ransom was paid. Oscar is Chang's only child. His father is Taiwanese businessman Billy Wong Ching-hung, Ms Chang's second husband. She has two stepsons from Mr Wong's first marriage. Chang praised the professionalism of the police in dealing with the incident and said: 'We thank all our friends for their support.' But she said she now had new fears. 'I sincerely hope the media will let my family go back to its normal life so that we can put this behind us.' Chang was born in Taiwan and spent her teenage years in New York before moving to Hong Kong when she was 19. She was spotted by Golden Harvest and cast in Flying Tiger. She has since been involved in more than 70 films, including Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman, Mike Newell's adaptation of Timothy Mo's Soursweet, Full Moon in New York and Queen of Temple Street.
