The 32-year-old head of a private tuition school was yesterday charged with indecent conduct towards children after a VCD of an alleged assault on a young girl was sent to police and a Chinese-language newspaper which published pictures of the incident. The man will appear in Tsuen Wan Court today. A police spokesman said the suspect was arrested on Tuesday after police received an anonymous letter containing two VCDs. The letter accused a tuition school owner in Tsuen Wan of being the offender. The case was passed to the child abuse investigation unit of New Territories South Police, and the man was arrested. Computers, compact discs and albums were seized during a search of his home and office in Tsuen Wan. The spokesman would not give further details of the case, but he added that police believed the sender of the anonymous letter had also passed the material to Apple Daily. The newspaper yesterday published a front-page report on the case and showed a picture of the suspect with several children. The paper also published stills of video footage of a man apparently molesting a young girl. Although the faces in all the photos were obscured, some social activists and the press council criticised the way the paper handled the story. Choi Chi-sum, general secretary of the Society for Truth and Light, said it was unnecessary to publish the stills from the video footage. He said it would cause embarrassment and put pressure on families with children attending the tuition school. 'The face of the man can be easily identified. So even though the children's faces were obscured, the neighbourhood could easily guess which school it was,' Mr Choi said. 'It will make parents and girls attending the school very embarrassed.' David Wong Chun-tung, general director of the Press Council, said the paper should be more cautious when handling cases involving young sex victims. 'It is improper and unreasonable,' he said. The acting chairperson of the Journalists' Association, Camoes Tam, said the face of the suspect had not been obscured well enough to effectively conceal his identity. However, he said the report was balanced and comprehensive. Mr Tam said the paper had given the victims enough protection.
