HONG KONG, Aug 1 (Reuter)
A Hong Kong judge ruled on Tuesday that Michelangelo's David is not obscene. The High Court decision resulted from a case brought by an English-language newspaper, the Eastern Express, which sought to quash a ruling by the colony's Obscene Articles Tribunal that a picture it published of the sculpture was obscene.

The paper's editor, Michael Chugani, said the judge declared no jurist would find the statue of a nude David indecent and referred the case back to the tribunal for a re-ruling.

"Hong Kong is set to become the laughing stock of the world," the paper said when it launched the court case.
