Commerce secretary dodges fecal blows

Three parcels of what is believed to be human faeces caused a stink when they were delivered to the home and office of commerce secretary Gregory So, Ming Pao Daily News reported Thursday.

But the parcels missed their apparent target because So is on a business trip to Paris. The commerce secretary called on members of the community to express their opinions in civilized and rational ways.

Police conducted an initial investigation but no one has been arrested.

Legislative Council president Jasper Tsang, legislators Ip Kwok-him and Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee said the act was disgusting and annoying.

So has come in for heavy public criticism for urging for Hong Kong people to be more tolerant towards mainland tourists following the outcry caused by footage of a mainland couple letting their toddler urinate in a Mong Kok street, the report said.
