Disgraced politician Alex Ho Wai-to escaped these demonstrators yesterday when he arrived late for a district council meeting. He was two hours late for a Kwun Tong District Council meeting, the first since his release from mainland detention in February, by which time the protesters had left. Mr Ho was held for six months after being found with a prostitute in a Dongguan hotel room. About 50 residents from Shun Tin Estate had gathered outside the Kwun Tong government offices before the meeting. Mr Ho, who has quit the Democratic Party, remains a Kwun Tong district councillor.
