IT was business as usual yesterday for cult master Yuen Chong after being fined yesterday for ordering the caning of a disciple. Yuen and the man who wielded the cane, Yu Wang-kwan, were convicted of assault causing bodily harm and were fined $10,000 and $5,000 respectively. But Yuen wasted no time getting back to a Sin Tan Tao healing session at his Hunghom temple. Incense and candles were burning inside the fourth floor flat in Baker Street, where followers were worshipping. In the centre of the room, Mr Yuen, 64, was curing a frail-looking woman with the inner energy qi gong. But the master did not want to talk when the South China Morning Post visited the sect's temple yesterday. He hardly took his eyes off his patient. Mr Yuen was in a 'bad mood' after the District Court hearing, said his disciples who sat quietly on a wooden bench, watching the healing. 'The master's mood is understandable. 'He is very upset one of his disciples has betrayed him,' said a tall man, who would only give his surname of Chan. To the followers, there was nothing wrong with Mr Yuen's decision to carry out corporal punishment on 'deviant disciples' - except the law did not consider it right. 'The law allows parents to use corporal punishment on their children but not the master on his disciples,' the tall man said.
