PJ investigator arrested for fraud

105

A criminal investigator with the Judiciary Police, allegedly involved in an illegal recruitment system involving over 320 workers from the Mainland searching for employment in the MSAR, has been fired and will face charges of fraud, according to local broadcaster TDM. The fraud scheme involved receiving commissions to procure work for the individuals in the hotel industry, jobs which never materialised despite commissions paid of up to RMB1.5 million.
The investigator was not suspended from his job until last Friday, after a year and a half-long investigation. Secretary for Security Wong Sio Chak declared that “The departments under the Secretariat for Security are very serious about discipline and will not tolerate any violations”.
