Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi thank you for your message, I am qualified in England so you would need to confirm with a local lawyer in HK but I am aware that Hong Kong follows the English Common Law tradition, so the principles are likely to be similar. If the letters were taken without consent and against the wishes of the deceased's will for example then this is likely to constitute theft and therefore be illegal. If the family member will not return the letters therefore, you should consider reporting them to the police and the threat of this may cause them to return the letters. I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (there should be a button on your screen to do this) and Just Answer will credit me for helping you today
