There is 'a grave hole in the international response' to violence in Cameroon, IRC says. During a cell inspection forbidden items playing cards and improvised weapons are found and several men from the cell among them Yiu, Micky and Bill, the boss of another triad are brought to ranking warden officer Hung for questioning.
Hong Kong 'Umbrella' protesters sentenced to jail terms
Hung is nicknamed "scarface" by the prisoners due to a characteristic scar. He tries to recruit Yiu as an informant , which he refuses. Following that Hung questions Micky, asking him to let his henchmen search for tools which went missing in the prison work shops serving as makeshift weapons. In return Hung would transfer one of Micky's rivals to a different prison. Since someone needs to be held responsible for the improvised weapons, Micky proposes to claim that Yiu blamed one of Bill's men. Hung accepts the deal and transfers several triad members to another prison as "punishment".
The following night Yiu is dragged into the cell's lavatory by Micky's men and beaten up. Ching attempts to stop them to no avail.
When one of the guards hears the noise and intervenes, Yiu tells him he just slipped and is left alone for the time being. Yiu's girlfriend visits him in prison and announces to study in England for nine months. Yiu is agitated and asks her to stay in Hong Kong, but is ultimately unable to convince her. Later the day Micky approaches Yiu in the laundry and demands a compensation for the punishment of his triad men. Yiu publicly accuses him of calumny and punches him, which results in a brawl. Yiu keeps his opponents on distance with a sharp piece of broken glass until the guards arrive, but also accidentally hurts Ching with it.
Yiu and Ching are summoned to the prison warden. When asked what started the fight Ching accuses Officer Hung who's also present of having tricked Yiu. The warden promises to have the case investigated and moves both into temporary solitary confinement as punishment.

Their son now lives with the grandmother and regularly visits him in prison. The following summer Micky is transferred back to the prison. After 20 years, prisoners should appear in person before the panel. Aitken, however, knows they face a tough battle.

The guard, a good friend, allows Mario to continue filling the A4 loose sheets with his careful cursive handwriting. The tedium and boredom suppresses emotions in inmates; tempers flare but guards move quickly, he writes. He used to sew buttons, a job with ample downtime, but switched after the heart attack to a unit that makes trousers. Less time for writing now, he laments. He writes for himself and others, to newspapers, other inmates, politicians, old friends and, recently, Coconuts HK.
He helps inmates enrolled in courses with assignments, assists the newly incarcerated draft letters of appeal. Many female prisoners write to seek his opinion on how to adjust to prison, or just to tell their stories.
