I am directed to write regarding the report headlined, 'Litigant's beauty of a claim denied by puzzled judge', which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on July 28.

The way the unusually large-sized photograph of the judge, Mr Justice Wally Yeung, was placed side by side with that of a beauty queen in a swimsuit, causes serious concern.

It is irrelevant to your report and has brought embarrassment and distress to the judge who takes great exception to such a manner of court reporting.
