In the wake of the announcement that the Queenie Law kidnappers have been arrested Hong Kong media and news outlets have been abuzz with the topics of Kidnapping and Ransoms; so much so that the South China Morning Post is reporting a surge in requests for bodyguards and security experts amongst the city’s VIP’s.
When Ms Law was abducted from her luxury Sai Kung home on April 27th, along with almost HK$ 2,000,000 in cash and valuables, she experienced a harrowing ordeal which ended only after her father, Raymond Law Ka-Kui, paid an extortionate ransom of HK$ 28,000,000. While Ms Law stated she was “was greatly scared by the kidnapping" she also told media at a recent press conference “that neither my spirit nor my body suffered or sustained any injury because of the kidnap.”

It’s not news to state that Hong Kong is experiencing something of a renaissance as a major hub in the world’s jewelry markets. With the recently closed Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, and the upcoming Magnificent Jewels and Jadite Auction being held by Sotheby’s on October 7th, our city is quickly becoming a focal point for Asian buyers looking to expand their personal jewelry collections.
However, despite the incredible growth in Hong Kong’s jewelry market in recent years, risks still abound for consumers. With the increasing availability of exceptional jewelry items and precious stones through a variety of auctions and locally hosted trade events comes an uptick of criminal events targeting these markets – evidenced by the fact that the Jewellery & Gem Fair experienced no less than 6 instances of attempted theft.

With the news that Carlos Tevez’s father has just been released by his abductors, the subject of Kidnapping (and the following ransom) is trending across leading social networks.
Although it is not a common topic of discussion, the high degree of economic expansion of many corporations and countries in the early years of the 21st century has been accompanied with an increase in crime levels in a number of levels – particularly with regards to cases of kidnapping. In fact, according to current statistics, two kidnappings will occur every hour somewhere around the world.
