IT was a record-breaking moment. When a Post reporter called the usually surly Police Public Relations Branch, a friendly, helpful voice greeted her. Warming to this unusual reception, our scribe tried to confirm the arrest of a hairstyling boss who had allegedly forced his Filipino maid to work in a store. Unfortunately, the PPRB 'information officer' runs a recording studio in Wan Chai. And although the propaganda unit's number is listed in a government directory, a misprint means the hapless studio is inundated with calls from journalists requesting police information every day. When she dialled the real PPRB later, the result was the same. They had as much information as the recording studio, though it was relayed more curtly: 'No comment.'
