A POLICEMAN took $100 from a homosexual student in return for not arresting him for loitering, a court heard yesterday. Western Court heard Siu Shing-kai, 24, was wandering about inside a Lan Kwai Fong public toilet on October 12 last year when Constable Chan Ho-lun, 25, saw him. Prosecutor Wayne Walsh said the officer stoppedMr Siu and asked him what he was doing there. Magistrate Barnabas Fung heard Mr Siu was homosexual and had been looking for a partner. Chan was alleged to have told Mr Siu that he could arrest him for loitering. He searched Mr Siu but found nothing illegal. When he examined Mr Siu's wallet, he discovered he was a university student. The policeman had warned him that if he was arrested and had a criminal record, he would not be able to go back to college. Mr Siu pleaded with Chan to give him a chance, the court heard. Mr Walsh alleged Chan took $100 from the wallet and asked if he had any objection. Mr Siu made no response and was released, it was claimed. Later Mr Siu made a report to the Independent Commission Against Corruption. Chan pleaded not guilty to accepting an advantage. Mr Fung adjourned the case until next Wednesday.
