On Friday’s Backchat, police; and public toilets.
Senior Assistant Commissioner and Director of National Security, Frederic Choi was caught during a raid on an unlicensed massage parlour and has now been put on leave. Police chief Chris Tang says the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau is now looking into the case. He adds that “this incident would have an effect on the overall situation of the police force.”
Lawmaker Paul Tse pointed out that visiting an unlicensed massage parlour is not illegal. “It's no worse than going to an unlicensed restaurant, and not even as serious as jaywalking”, he said. Do you agree?
What do you think of the police’s handling of it? How did the media report on the incident? The Commissioner and other senior policemen have been outspoken on many issues from fake news to geopolitics lately. Do you welcome this? What is the public
image of the police like now?
From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be discussing public toilets in Hong Kong. The Ombudsman has called for heavier penalties on contractors to improve the state of public toilets. How do you rate them? How would you improve them?
