Eight people involved in last month's Hong Kong kidnapping case were arrested in Guangdong where 2.8 million Hong King Dollars (about 361,290 USD), one tenth of the ransom, was seized, Guangdong police said on May 14. A suspect of the case was caught earlier by police in Hong Kong.

The suspects broke into a house to commit burglary and abducted Queenie Rosita Law, 29, granddaughter of late Hong Kong tycoon Law Ting-pong (Founder of the famous brand Bossini). The kidnappers demanded 28 million HK dollars for her release. Law was released on April 28.

Deputy Director-General of Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department Guo Shaobo said at a press conference that the case had been cracked and nine people had different roles in the planned kidnapping. Seven people are allegedly directly involved in the crime, one is allegedly responsible for organizing human smuggling and one person is suspected of being in charge of concealing the criminals and the ransom. However, the suspects' target was the house, not Law and her family.

Guo said all suspects were residents of Shenzhen. In the beginning of April this year, one of the criminals went to Hong Kong with ‘Exit-Entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao' and then six other criminals crossed over into Hong Kong. In the half month following, the seven criminals kept scouting around the Fei'er Mountain where the tycoons' houses gather in. Finally they selected Law as their target, police said.

In the early hours of April 25, criminals broke into Law's house, forcing Law to open the safe and then rob goods worth 2 million HKD. Meanwhile, the suspects found Law's granddaughter Queenie Rosita and kidnapped her. Law's family at last gave the criminals 28 million HKD to save the granddaughter. Law then called the police for help.

Guangdong Police will keep cooperating with HK Police to uncover the rest of the ransom.
