Hong Kong: 767 damaged in trainee revenge

Hong Kong: 767 damaged in trainee revenge

Posted by clm on 29 August 2014

The HK Standard reports that a Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company trainee damaged 14 core electronic circuits of a Boeing 767 aircraft to exact revenge against his boss. Tang Wing-hon, 19, was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on September 15 at District Court, pending training center and psychological reports. Tang pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of “damaging property and recklessly endangering life.” The prosecution said the damaged circuits did not seriously affect the aircraft, which could fly after being repaired, but the cost of thoroughly checking the aircraft and repairing the 14 circuits amounted to HK$86,000. The prosecution quoted aircraft experts as saying that although the autopilot system and satellite communication channel would be affected, the aircraft could still fly using manual controls and other means. Judge Frankie Yiu Fun-che said damaging an aircraft is a serious criminal act. He requested the prosecution to ask experts before sentencing for the worst-case scenario arising from damaged electronic circuits. The defense said Tang was feeling guilty about the damage he had caused. Tang, who worked in June when he was on bail, will give the HK$15,000 he earned during that time to the company. The damage was discovered during a routine check of the aircraft.  Tang, who was part of the maintenance team, said he wanted to cause trouble for his boss who had sworn at him.

Law enforcement and intelligence agencies estimate that the threat of using suicide attackers to attack targets in the U.S or Europe is no longer considered a low probability event. The US born terrorist Abu-Salha had returned to the United States for several months after receiving training by an extremist group in Syria is an appropriate example to this estimate. According to the agencies over 1,000 Westerners including approximately 100 Americans and more than 350 Belgians had received training and gained practical combat experience in Syria. Counter terrorism officials in both Europe and the United States have long said they consider the return of their radicalized citizens from Syria a looming threat. This recent turn of events raises the question of the use of risk-based intelligence driven screening as an ongoing security concept. Abu Hurayrah al- ameriki known as Moner Mohammad Abusalha, 22 years old, Florida-born college dropout, chose to carry out his attack in Syria rather than in the United States, but in a alarming new video, the US-born jihadist warned America that “we are coming for you. You think you’re safe where you are, in America or Britain or Indonesia or Jordan or China or Russia or Somalia or Africa? You are not safe…we are coming for you. Mark my words.” American officials are still piecing together Abu-Salha’s travels between his two Syria trips but the fact is that a radical suicide terrorist with the intention of attack came on board international and domestic flights. Intelligence and other law enforcement agencies are blamed for missing the terrorist travels, not detecting red flags, allowing him to fly “below radar”...
