'Gweilo Long Hair' to face retrial over 2007 protest The Court of Appeal has allowed prosecutors a new trial of a case in which a British-born activist - whom local media have dubbed 'Gweilo Long Hair' - unfurled a banner outside the Court of Final Appeal in 2007. Mr Justice Michael Hartmann decided the activist, Matt Pearce, 33, had a case to answer on the evidence that was before the magistrate who dismissed his charge. Pearce had been charged with causing an obstruction in a public place for stretching the banner across Battery Path on November 30, 2007. Magistrate Gary Lam Kar-yan had ruled that he had no case to answer, but Mr Justice Hartmann granted the appeal and remitted the case for a new trial before another magistrate. Stepmother arrested for assault Police arrested a woman visitor from the mainland on suspicion of assaulting her 10-year-old stepson yesterday. The boy was found by teachers at his Ngau Tau Kok school to have abrasions on his face. The school called police. He was taken to United Christian Hospital for treatment and examination, and police arrested his stepmother, 26. Passer-by prevents suicide bid A male passer-by rescued a woman, 50, who jumped into the sea on the Ko Fai Road waterfront in a suicide bid in Yau Tong at about 10am.
