Cecilia Cheung’s management office was recently burgled and had three computers stolen. The computers contain Cecilia’s publicity photos, private family photos and file including personal information and confidential contract-related files. Ms Chow, Cecilia’s agent was travelling with Cecilia while she has been shuttling between Hong Kong and the mainland filming Alls Well Ends Well 2011 and Lady Generals of the Yang Family. The company office and neighboring offices were broken into when investigating police called Ms Chow to ask if she knew of the break in. When Ms Chow returned to the management office to assess the loss, she found that three computers were missing. Cecilia’s lawyers have already warned against publication of any materials found in the computers. (Xinhua), (Sina)
