Mafia-style gang crimes are acts that include eleme

Mafia-style gang crimes are acts that include eleme

ments of outrage and public oppression. Crimes committed solely for economic gain

without such elements should not be handled as gang crimes, Jiang said. Also, to be iden

tified as a gang members, suspects must be aware of the mafia-style nature of the activities they are involved in.

“We’ve seen cases where judicial workers at the grassroots level have wrongly identifie

d mafia-style criminal gangs, so clarifying the legal definition is very important. Such g

angs are sometimes associated with crimes such as organizing prostitution and drug traffic

king, but it doesn’t mean that any group that is involved in such criminal activities can be handled as a mafia-style gang,”

said Lin Wei, vice-president of the University of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and an expert in law.

According to the directive, gang members who commit minor crimes or who cause little bodi

ly harm to others, and who confess, can be given lenient sentences or even exempted from punishment. But those w

ho commit brutal crimes and cause severe harm to society won’t receive leniency, even if they confess.

The report also found out that in the choice of prope

perty, unlike men, women showed stronger preference to those that were close to premium education resources and transport infrastructure.

The changing trend has to some extent affected the marketing strategy of some property developers. Liu Ce, research direc

tor of Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd, a Hong Kong listed property developer, said the look of the property, inc

luding interior design and views, was becoming an important factor, while location and price were less decisive.

“The gender gap in the workplace is shrinking. Thus more women are financially capable of buying properties on th

eir own, especially those living in first and second-tier cities,” said Pan Helin, an economic commentator.

He said as the divorce ratio remained relatively high, owning property provided a sense of security for women.

“Growing salaries of women professionals have changed their perceptions about marriage,” he added. “More

women have come to realize the importance of having their own place and gaining independence.”
