Police chief pledges transparency with media Police commissioner Dick Lee Ming-kwai yesterday tried to allay journalists' fears that they will be cut off from news events when encryption of police radios renders reporters' scanners useless next month. Reporters will have to rely on an online list of events compiled by the police public relations branch and the Information Services Department. 'I believe there is no conflict between policing work and news reporting,' Mr Lee said at a lunch organised by the Newspaper Society. 'I believe in press freedom and I also know the government adheres to the principle of freedom of information. There is the need for transparency in policing work.' The cases to be included on the website will be chosen according to criteria set by police and the information department. The Journalists' Association said it could not accept such an arrangement because the significance of an event in the eyes of a law enforcer 'is just not the same as a journalist'. Ciguatera hits four Four people suffered ciguatera poisoning after eating groupers at the West Villa Restaurant in Eastern District's City Plaza last Friday. A 35-year-old woman remained in hospital last night, the Department of Health said. The restaurant, which opened as usual last night, refused to comment. Centres 'fail disabled' Government health centres fail to offer appropriate facilities for people with disabilities, the Association of Women with Disabilities said. After surveying 41 centres, the group said they all fell short. Fifteen did not have lifts and six had unsuitable bathrooms. Two killed in accidents A motorcyclist and a female pedestrian were killed in Kowloon Tong and Kowloon Bay. Yau Wai-ching, 42, died when he was run over after falling off his bike.
