Jackie Chan among least trustworthy Hong Kong peopleMarch 1st, 2010 - 12:06 pm ICT by IANS
Hong Kong, March 1 (DPA) Movie star Jackie Chan has been voted one of the least trustworthy Hong Kong personalities in a poll, scoring lower than the city’s unpopular Chief Executive Donald Tsang.
Chan, 56, who stunned his home city last year by saying Chinese people needed to be controlled and that too much freedom might harm China, finished behind Beijing-appointed Tsang, who ranked 77th out of 80 in the most-trusted poll.
Hong Kong’s most trustworthy personality was philanthropist and anti child-abuse campaigner Josephine Siao. Olympic gold medallist Lee Lai-shan and champion cyclist Wong Kam-po also finished in the top 10.
Another famous Hong Kong actor, Chow Yun-fat, ranked sixth in the annual poll by Reader’s Digest magazine which involved online interviews with 760 people and was published in Hong Kong newspapers Friday.
The least trusted profession was fortune teller, the poll found, following a celebrated case in which a feng shui master tried unsuccessfully to claim the $13-billion fortune of Asia’s richest woman Nina Wang using an allegedly forged will.
Insurance agents and property and stocks traders also finished in the bottom five professions for trustworthiness.
The most trusted professions in the poll were firefighters, medical technicians, doctors, physiotherapists, pharmacists and dentists.
