Four Waiters Jailed for Beating Irked Diners

June 27, 1987|From Reuters

LONDON — Diners who complained about the food at the Diamond restaurant in the heart of London's Chinatown got a stronger reaction than they expected--four of the waiters beat them with baseball bats, clubs and sticks.

The four were each sentenced Friday to two years in jail for what Judge Denis Paiba described as a disgraceful show of unprovoked violence.

The court heard that the diners, who expressed their dislike for food they had been served, were "clubbed like seals" by the four when they complained.

The four, Kim Chu, 30, Frankie Lam, 30, Peter Lee, 25 and Cheung Ki, 35, had pleaded not guilty.
