    Lawrence Yu, Chairman of Road Safety Campaign Committee, says that Committee will strengthen the consequences of drink driving in new publicity tactics by conducting a research on leaving wreckage of drunk driving car acccident on display on the highway or in front of tunnels in order to alert drivers not to drunk driving. The Committee also considers playing longer time length of education films.

     

    Lawrence Yu says after the meeting that the Committee will study the result of putting drunk driving accident wreckage on display in front of tunnel or on the highway to alert drivers not to drink driving; and step up education publicity of the consequences of drink driving. He says publicity methods is conservative in the past, but Committee will not follow the example of foreign countries in playing bloody scenes in films because Hong Kong has its own drunk driving law "should go its own way." He says that Committee will also allocate funds for schools to promote education to caution the younger generation against drunk driving and hopes to stengthen coordination with the 18 District Councils in their education campaigns.

     

    Earlier opinions have voiced out whether there was a possibility of adding warnings such as phrases or symbols on beer cans just as warnings on cigarette packets, to which Lawrence Yu responds that there are difficulties in legislation, and they must discuss with professional to research on topic.

The "prostitute killer" who had been at large after committing crimes was finally arrested yesterday afternoon, and the killer's true identity was a tall, trendy looking in a healthy-sunshine-disposition 24-years-old guy. To Kwa Wan Police locked the suspect from a convenience store closed-circuit television tapes and Octopus consumption record. Yesterday at South Lok Wah South in Hei Wah Building, police broke down suspect's apartment's door to arrest the suspect, and the suspect threw a batch of evidence out to the street before police came in, including a bottle of thinner used to commit crimes.

    The suspect's family name was Hong, 24 years old, came from a single-parent family living with his mother in South Lok Wah. Shortly after Hong was born, his father and mother had divorced, and mom single-handedly raised Hong, so mom and Hong shared a deep bond, therefore Hong was very filial to his mother. Hong's mother retired a few years ago, and Hong often accompanied his mother to drink morning tea, and he usually tells jokes to decrease mom's boredom. Because Hong was tall, handsome, and spoke in soft voice, residents were impressed by him, describing him as a handsome guy who was full of sunshine, and they could not imagine that he was involved in prostitutes homicide.

But this year, no one had seen his girlfriend visiting him. Neighbors speculated that Hong broke up and Hong often came home late, sometimes in the morning of two or three o'clock. Hong also likes the Internet, and often browsed guide to prostitutes business district, so neighbors did not rule out he locked his target from browsing. When police entered the apartment yesterday, his mom was not home. When mom knew her son was arrested afterward, she was surprise, and was taken to the police station to provide information.

     

    Police mobilized 5 teams, more than 100 officers in the region to investigate due to a series of prostitutes murder.

By tracking Octopus record, police locked the youth as target. Yesterday morning, nearly 30 officers started a surveillance at South Lok Wah waiting for an opportunity to take action.

     

    To about two o'clock yesterday afternoon, the officers knocked on the door of a residential unit in Hei Wah Building. But the suspect refused to open the door, who took the opportunity to dump a bottle of thinner and a number of plastic bottles, possibly drugs out to the Street from a windon. The officers broke into the flat to tame the suspect and took him to the police station for further investigation. On the other hand, the police block the community hall facing Hei Wah Building. Identification Bureau officers climbed up to the first floor canopies to pick up exhibits, at the same time seized a large quantity of evidence in the apartment. The police suspected that the bottles thrown onto the platform contained thinner, mainly used for suffocating victims in order to facilitate crimes.

    The day before yesterday, police discovered a home-style operated sex club in Woosung Street, Yau Ma Tei that yesterday they launched an anti-vice operation at the site smashing a prostitution ring operated in building. Police officers posing as customers to raid a residential unit and arrested 5 Mainland Chinese women and a local man in charge. Among the six arrested persons, five Mainland Chinese women held two-way permits coming from Sichuan and Hunan, aged between 24 to 36-years-old. After the Spring Festival, a prostitution ring coordinated the women to come to Hong Kong to earn "quick cash". The women are now detained in police station in violation for over staying in Hong Kong; another local man (49 years old) was charged with suspicion of living on earning of prostitution.

     

    The scene was at a residential unit on second floor in No. 67 Campbell Building on Woosung Street, Yau Ma Tei. The unit was with an area of more than 800 feet and turned into a 7 independent suites for the prostitutes to receive customers daily. The unit was packed with regular clients at lunch time daily. Prostitutes would also solicit customers on the street and brought customers back to the suites to conduct transactions, to which each transaction cost 200 dollars, and earnings was split between the male host and prostitute. It is learned that the "service time" was only 15 minutes per person, and the prostitution ring was in charge by the triads.

     

    Senior Inspector, Leung King-man, in charge of the third team of Yau Tsim District Special Duty Squad, said that earlier the police received tips that there were Mainland Chinese prostitutes at the aforementioned site, so they started investigation shortly after. At noon yesterday, the officers posing as customers to accept prostitutes solicitation in the street, and followed them to the unit. At the time of them attempting to carry out transactions, police revealed their identities and arrested the people, thereby smashing an instant sex club controlled by traids arresting six persons.

    A prostitution organization has a new approach to attract business by converting a 800-feet residential unit into four suites operating it as a home business, specializing in working population during lunch hour in Yau Ma Tei. At the same time, the organization employs "double lost youth" with triad background to chair charging price ranging from 200 to 500 dollars. Yesterday, police sent undercovers to arrest four prostitutes and chairs.

     

    Senior Inspector, Leung King-Man, responsible for this operation of Yau Tsim District Special Duty Squad, said that the organization operated about three months leasing a residential unit on Woosung Street in Yau Ma Tei, who only transacted business with familiar customers. Therefore, those wanted to patronize had to be introduced through a friend, uttered a code word before one could enter into the unit "patronizing." The organization practiced business in a different way by taking advantage of office workers lunch time as "break". As a result of cheap prices, there was a regular group of clientele. After the successful operation, there were still 6 to 7 men knocking on the door wanting service, but because there was no direct soliciting for immoral purpose, those men were not arrested.

     

    Leung King-Man said they received tips about a month ago pointing there was immoral business being implicitly operated in the residential unit, so police immediately sent officers to investigate. There was tight security, just cameras alone and there were four closed-circuit television systems to monitor the situation outside the house on the floor. On the first sign of trouble, people will stop clamoring that it increased the difficulty of police investigation. One o'clock yesterday afternoon, police officers posing as clients knocked the door, and successfully mixed into the unit being received as customers, so they secretly tipped off colleagues for an ambush outside the house, and arresting the people together. The arrested man was 19 years old dropping school at Form.3 with a triad background earning 400 dollars daily, who was still ignorant to the gravity of the crime after he was arrested, because once he was convicted of living on earnings of prostitution, he could be sentenced to imprisonment and a life jail term with record left in his file. At the same time, four Mainland Chinese women who were detained for investigation all held two-way permits and they were from HuBei, therefore they will be transferred to the Immigration Department to follow up.
