Ji Bingxiong, one of the "Three Great Thieves", was suspected of robbing jewellery and gold shops several times in the 1980s and 1990s. In 2005, the High Court convicted him of possession of firearms and ammunition and possession of explosives without a license. He was sentenced to 24 years in prison . After a three-year deduction, he was released from prison today (18th).
It is understood that he does not have the right of abode, but holds a valid U.S. passport, so he will be deported and sent to the airport for a flight to New York, USA. Since Ji Bingxiong was a serious felon, the police arranged the Flying Tigers to be on alert along the way to the airport.
"Hong Kong 01" was broadcast live this morning when Ji Bingxiong was released from prison and headed to the airport. At about 7.45 in the morning, he left the prison by 28 minibuses and will head to the airport. He will arrive at the restricted area of the airport after about 1:00; at about 10:30, the airport special police are on alert at the gate of the flight to the United States. Ji Bingxiong's minibus was parked beside the aircraft.
