Kwai Ping-hung yesterday demanded that he be switched from police custody to a jail cell so he could take a 'proper bath'. Hong Kong's most-wanted man took exception to the condition of his police accommodation, describing it as 'dirty, filthy and unhygienic', his lawyer, Albert Luk, told Magistrate Gary Tallentire. Mr Luk told the magistrate that his client did not object to an identification parade, nor to his next court appearance at Eastern Magistrates' Court, but he did have one request. 'He has had no chance for a bath and would like to take a proper bath,' Mr Luk said. Superintendent Simon So Kam-sing, of the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau, said all the cells had bathing facilities and Kwai would have ample opportunity to wash himself. After conferring with Kwai, Mr Luk said his client, who was being held at North Point police station, was still 'not happy' with the promise of a bath. Kwai's co-accused, Ng Chun-keung, told Mr Tallentire he also objected to the bathing facilities at Western police station, where he was being held. Mr Tallentire refused the men's request. 'I am satisfied that the facilities in the cells are adequate and the comments made in respect to the conditions of the cells are not accurate and not supported,' he said. 'These matters are constantly under monitoring by independent officials and I am satisfied that there are high standards being maintained at these two police stations.'
