    Wow. He is Senior Assistant Commissioner and Director of National Security.

    “Although 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,” the source said. “Officers are still investigating the case.”


    A police spokesman only said an inquiry involving alleged misconduct by an officer was under way.
    So when an officer breaks the law by building structures on public land, nothing happens to him and the head of the Lands Department is demoted, while if one does something that is actually not illegal he faces 10 years in jail?

    He really must have pissed someone at the top off.

    Pretty obvious he is targeted. The countless number of massage parlors, this guy happened to be in one at the time of a "random" raid... they might as well just frame him with cocaine.

    On the mainland, sure, such secrets are often "watertight", in the sense that such news has no possibility of it being disclosed in anyway. But in HK, there is still a degree of...leakage to the press. Maybe in the not-too-distant future, that leakage would be closed...but in HK its not 100% watertight...yet. To forestall such risk, however low it might have been, it does make sense to the authorities to disclose it.

    Still, I can see how this officer in question could have done something to offend his superiors, either his HK police superiors or the CCP agents in the NSL office. He thus has to be made an example of. It's all too easy for the CCP to identify their..."weakness" and use it against them, if need be. This could even be a trump-up allegation, a setup to entrap him or a completely fictional one, anything goes for the CCP if they want you nailed.

    You worked for the police, do you now? Clearly you are not familiar with the more...sordid history of HK police and vice.

    This is far from the first time for such occurrences. In the past, HK police officers have been caught in these "establishments" before... by their own colleagues engaged in anti-vice operations. So its not very shocking in that sense. The only difference is the seniority of this particular officer and the duty he was entrusted with...that raised a few eyebrows.

    Having said that... this guy was not exactly an innocent / naive idiot.

    Upon advancement to Senior Superintendent in 2014, he commanded a formation in Security Wing engaging in intelligence operations, investigation, analysis and liaison relating to security-related issues. In June 2017, Mr. CHOI was promoted to Chief Superintendent and took up the post as the deputy in Security Wing, and from January 2019 he was promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner and commanded the Security Wing. In July 2020, Mr. CHOI further advanced to the rank of Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police and commands the National Security Department of the Hong Kong Police Force.

    During his career, he has received training at various Mainland and overseas institutions, including the Tsing Hua University in Beijing, UK’s National Police Improvement Agency, Australian Institute of Police Management, Canadian Police College, US Asia-Pacific Centre for Security Study and Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

    Mr. CHOI attained his Bachelor’s degree in Social Science and holds both Master’s degree in Human Rights Laws as well as Public Policy and Management.

    You don't have to be an innocent or naive idiot to be targetted in a purge. Quite the opposite in fact.

    Sounds like a storyline from Rush Hour.

    Rush Hour 4?

    Well, you have to be one to walk into an "unsanctioned" massage parlour. Someone, somewhere did not get or write a memo or forgot to fax it.
