SIX men, including three brothers, arrested in a raid which netted four million contraband cigarettes pleaded guilty in Western Court yesterday to possession. They had pleaded not guilty in September to conspiracy to export smuggled cigarettes. Prosecutor Paul Loughlam told the court a joint operation between the Independent Commission Against Corruption and police on March 13 last year resulted in the seizure of the cigarettes at Hip Hing Timber Yard, Fung Kat Heung, Yuen Long, and the six arrests. The men admitted a lesser charge of possessing smuggled cigarettes before magistrate Paul Kelly. Three brothers, taxi drivers Chow Chun-hei, 31, and Chow Chi-fai, 29, and Chow Yiu-fai, 45, with fellow transport workers Lai Ah-sing, 37, and Ho Chi-fai, 27, were each given six months' imprisonment, suspended for two years, and fined $5,000. Chow Yiu-fai had brought in his son Chow Wah-wong, 18, who was fined $5,000, and his brother, Chow Chi-fai, in November 1993. They earned $300 a day packing cigarettes. Chow Chun-hei had worked at the site for only a week. Ho had put in three days, while Lai had worked full-time.
