In a story headlined 'Sexual harassment complaints drop'' on page 4 of last week's edition, two quotes were wrongly attributed to Equal Opportunities Commission spokeswoman Mariana Law Po-chu.

In paragraph 11, the quote: 'Unfortunately, the victims were harassed when only they and their harassers were present' should have been attributed to Sally Choi Wing-sze of the Association for the Advancement of Feminism. In the same passage, the quote: 'If there are witnesses, they do not dare to speak out because they are afraid of being sacked by the harassers' and the claim 'as a result, witnesses were reluctant to come forward and victims frequently did not report the harassment' should have been attributed to a victim of sexual harassment. We regret the errors.
