A police probe into the handling of her case will share its results, says top officer An independent watchdog group will be briefed on the results of an internal police investigation into the handling of the case of Tin Shui Wai mother Kim Shuk-ying, who was stabbed to death hours after she went to a police station for help. Assistant Commissioner of Police Charles Wong Doon-yee made the promise after the internal Complaints Against Police Office took over the investigation of the case from the New Territories North Regional Crime Unit. He said the office did so after getting a complaint from a member of the public, demanding an investigation into the case's handling. As this was not a formal complaint to the office, the investigation could not be subjected to the normal monitoring of the Independent Police Complaints Council, Mr Wong said. 'But as there is a great public interest in the case, we will brief the council on the investigation results if it is interested,' Mr Wong said. Kim, 31 and her daughters Li Yin-li, six, and Li Tsz-wan, five, were found stabbed to death in their Tin Shui Wai flat on April 11. The girls' father, Li Pak-sum, 44, is in a coma in the intensive care unit of Tuen Mun Hospital. Police have admitted that Kim visited Tin Shui Wai police station the day she was stabbed to death, after originally claiming she had not approached officers that day. Kim's friends claim she was expecting a police escort when she went from a women's shelter to the flat she shared with her husband, whom she said threatened her. In response to criticism that the force did not care about the victims and failed to apologise to their relatives, Mr Wong said: 'It's unfair to say that we don't care. The police pledge to serve all members of the public the best they can with pride and care. 'If there is any service that falls short of this, appropriate action will be taken.' But he added it was too early to say whether any officer was at fault before the completion of their investigation, which he said would be conducted seriously and fairly. The council's vice-chairman Lo Wing-lok, who has expressed concern over the case, last night agreed the police needed to brief the council about the investigation, given the huge level of public interest. The development came as the Social Welfare Department yesterday appointed Aaron Wan Chi-keung, a member of Social Welfare Advisory Committee, to chair a separate panel to review Kam's case. The panel's two other members are social work expert Nelson Chow Wing-sun, of Hong Kong University, and clinical psychologist Sandra Tsang Kit-man. They will meet government departments and other agencies involved in the case. They will also examine anti-domestic-violence measures adopted overseas before making recommendations for reforms in about six months.
