, defendants Lai Man-hon, 30, and Chan Tsz-ming, 28, forced the victim – a 25 year-old woman – to strip down and take a bath while they filmed her, saying that complying would reduce the amount she owed. Both Lai and Chan had pleaded guilty to the crimes in District Court earlier.

 reported that the victim borrowed a casino loan of about HK$37,000 (US$4,740) when she went to the gambling hub of Macau last year. She continued to gamble, and had 20 days to repay HK$60,000 (US$7,683). The website reported that when she returned to Hong Kong the following day, the two defendants were waiting for her at the pier and told her she owed HK$180,000 (about US$23,000). The woman insisted she only owed HK$60,000, but this was ignored by the two men, who took her to a hotel room where they filmed and took the nude photographs of her.

Which again shows that the adrenaline when someone is addicted to gambling can override common sense and end up doing stupid things. The lesson is: don't gamble. One small step is still a step.
