A DECORATOR and a hostess appeared in court yesterday after an Independent Commission Against Corruption investigation following the shooting of a nightclub hostess in a Tsim Sha Tsui bar. Ng Ming-kai, 41, and hostess Chan Suk-ling, 21, were arrested on Tuesday and jointly charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice by agreeing not to assist the Royal Hongkong Police in the investigation into the shooting incident in the Library lounge at the Houston Centre, Tsim Sha Tsui, on March 2 last year. Senior Crown Counsel Michael Holmes asked for Ng and Chan to be remanded in ICAC custody for seven days. He told Eastern Court the pair were initially facing a holding charge. Meanwhile, the ICAC was investigating allegations of ''high-level police corruption'' in connection with this matter and related issues, he said. ''The matter strikes at the administration of justice in Hongkong. [It] relates to a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice involving a shooting incident where a nightclub hostess was wounded.'' Magistrate Michael Hill adjourned the case until June 28. He allowed Ng bail of $40,000 and Chan bail of $20,000. He ordered them to surrender their travel documents, not to leave Hongkong and to report daily to the ICAC. Eight other people were arrested by the ICAC on Tuesday, including four policemen. They were released on bail on Wednesday night. In a separate case, hostess Candy Shum King-fan, 26, also appeared before Eastern Court yesterday charged with possession of an unknown quantity of herbal cannabis. Mr Hill granted her cash bail of $2,000 and adjourned the case until June 28.
