A POLICE officer was yesterday charged with accepting a bribe of a telephone. Constable Ho Kwok-lai, 35, denied in Tsuen Wan Court accepting a phone in September last year in return for not issuing warning letters and summonses against Sun Fook Kee (Civil) Limited. The papers were linked to road works in Kwai Chung. Ho, from the New Territories South Road Management and Road Works Office, also denies an alternative charge of accepting an advantage without the Governor's permission. He has been suspended from duty since his arrest in November last year. Magistrate Michael Jenkins set the trial for January 29. Ho was released on bail of $10,000. On Friday, six officers from the road works office, including a senior inspector, appeared in Eastern Court over allegations that they accepted bribes between June 1993 and September last year. In a separate case, they were alleged to have accepted hostess escort services, free trips to Macau and China, mooncakes and cognac from at least three construction companies and a transport firm. Their case was expected to be transferred to the District Court.
