Kimberly, the female judge of the Supreme Court who was recently accused of repeated mistakes in the trial of several drug trafficking cases involving foreigners, and was denounced as a serious judicial injustice, the judiciary confirmed that Kimberly had submitted to the Chief Justice of the Final Court in August this year Cheung Ju-neng resigned because she needs a one-year notice period for her resignation, and she is expected to officially resign in August next year.


Kimberly was born in England in June 1956 and is 66 years old. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the Open University of the UK and a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Reading. He was admitted to the bar in Hong Kong in 2000 and was appointed in 2013. A Senior Counsel, he was appointed by the Judiciary as a Judge of the Court of First Instance of the High Court in May 2016.

The general retirement age for judges is 65 years old, but they can apply to extend it to 70 years old. It is reported that when Kimberly was 65 years old last year, he chose to postpone his retirement until 70 years old.

In July this year, the prosecution pointed out that in handling three cases involving cross-border drug trafficking, two high court judges ruled that the evidence of the defendant who was suspected of bringing drugs from other places to Hong Kong and intercepted at the airport was not established, and thus appealed. Among the three cases, Kimberly was in charge of hearing two of them.

According to sources, Kimberly resigned abruptly from Chief Justice Zhang Juneng in August this year.

The Court of Appeal has not long ago appealed to the three cases and ruled that the original judge had overstepped the function of the jury when making the relevant verdicts. He believed that his verdict was erroneous, and that the relevant mistakes had caused serious judicial injustice.

The Court of Final Judgment on Monday (14th) also made a judgment on a foreign drug trafficking case handled by Kimberly, saying that she ruled in the case that the whats'app messages of the 68-year-old British defendant could not be presented in court. She made the same mistake. The defendant applied for a permanent termination of the hearing with her erroneous decision, which was also approved by her. The prosecution stated that it would appeal against its decision, but Kimberly still released the defendant on bail, and later changed the defendant's bail conditions to allow He can leave Hong Kong, so that although the final court ruled that the prosecution's appeal was allowed, it would be difficult for the prosecution to prosecute because the defendant had already left Hong Kong.
