Hong Kong: Top cop caught in unlicensed massage parlour raid
A top cop in Hong Kong police's National Security Department has been placed on leave after he was caught in a raid on an unlicensed massage parlour, say local media reports. Hong Kong police told BBC Chinese in a statement that they were investigating "An allegation of misconduct by a police officer", adding that the person involved had been placed on leave while the investigation continues. "The police attach great importance to the conduct of police officers... [we] will conduct a fair investigation," it added, though it declined to give further details on the incident or name the person involved. A senior police insider had told the South China Morning Post that while visiting or "Buying service at an unlicensed massage parlour might not constitute an offence that could result in an arrest, Choi could face a disciplinary hearing as his conduct affects the force's image and damages its reputation." Reports say Mr Choi became a police inspector in 1995, and was made senior assistant commissioner and director of the National Security Department last July.
