Simon Yam (任達華) was stabbed by a knife during an activity in Zhongshan in the morning on 20th July 2019. He was sent to the hospital for medical treatment immediately and the suspect was subdued by the security.
Ever wonder if Simon’s manager and assistant followed him to Zhongshan? After this incident, the artistes’ safety become the most important concern whenever attending an event in China. When asked if EEG would increase its manpower or request the organisation committee to reinforce the security, EEG senior management, Mani Fok (霍汶希) said: “The manager and assistant usually follow the artiste in every activity and there is a local security team in the local event. It is totally unexpected that the suspect follows a big group of people going up to the stage as we are unaware if he is the company’s staff taking a group photo together. It is an accident this time and we will reinforce the security in the future.”
