    On Friday’s backchat we’ll look at job scams, as the government said eight Hongkongers are currently being held captive in Myanmar after being lured overseas with fake job offers. 
    The Security Bureau said it had received 20 trafficking reports involving Hong Kong residents since the beginning of the year, with 12 of the suspected victims now safe. Ten of them have since returned to the SAR.
    A cross-department task force is now set up to rescue kidnapped residents across Southeast Asia.
    What do you think? How serious is the cross-border scam situation?
    After 9:15, we’ll look into the government’s plan to upgrade and widen Lion Rock Tunnel, in a bid to reduce traffic jams in peak hours.

    On Monday's Backchat: "fake news"; and elderly drivers.

    The government is studying ways to stop the spread of "fake news" and disinformation online, using overseas experience as a reference point, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said.

    Speaking at the Forum on Network Media of China, she said officials had to supervise and manage the media in an appropriate fashion, as "prevention is better than cure."

    Earlier, Chief Secretary John Lee supported a self-regulatory model for the media.

    From 9:15am, we’re talking about elderly drivers, after the Ombudsman urged the Transport Department to tighten medical requirements for older drivers.
