We understand the concerns of Lotje Widjaja ('Shocking sight', South China Morning Post, September 11), over the presence of beggars in some parts of the SAR.

In particular your correspondent was worried about the exit from the Hunghom KCR station on the bridge to the bus stops.

To tackle the problem, police officers on the beat have been instructed to monitor the situation closely and to take appropriate action when necessary.

There is no evidence at this stage to show that there are syndicated begging activities at this location.

Your correspondent is welcome to contact assistant divisional commander (administration), Hunghom Division, Jacob Ko, at 2761 8230 with any inquiries.
