Victim tempted with tale of Adam and Eve at church and home, court hears A Christian preacher invoked the tale of Adam and Eve to tempt a 15-year-old girl into sex, a court heard yesterday. Tsang Chiu-fook, 46, told the girl the biblical story of original sin and then asked if, like the pair in the Garden of Eden, she was prepared to 'show her frankness and honesty' by showing him her naked body, the District Court was told. That led to indecent assaults on seven occasions, including five at the girl's home, where he was teaching her music and two in a room at the 611 Bread of Life Church in Tai Po where he preached, the court heard. Tsang, married with two sons, pleaded guilty to seven charges of indecent assault between July and November 2005. In view of these pleas, the prosecution agreed not to proceed with seven other charges, including indecent assault and sexual intercourse with an under-age girl, to which he pleaded not guilty. Senior government counsel Anna Lai Yuen-kee told Deputy Judge Andrew Chan Hing-wai yesterday that Tsang started giving the victim music lessons at her home after they first met in the Tai Po church in July last year. But the offences only came to light on March 23 this year when the victim complained to a female preacher during a home visit. A day later, Ms Lai said, Tsang was confronted by colleagues and admitted he had indecently assaulted the girl. He made open confessions on March 26 and April 2 before a group of churchgoers that he had molested 'a female churchgoer' and surrendered to police on April 3. For Tsang, barrister Cheung Yiu-leung said his client had served in churches since 1993 until his arrest. To show his remorse, Tsang had moved out of his home in mid-May and now lives in Sha Tin quarters provided by the St Stephen's Society, a charity organisation funded by private donors and devoted to helping drug addicts kick their addiction. Mr Cheung also submitted more than 10 letters from Tsang's relatives, colleagues, churchgoers and his wife. He told the court that Tsang's wife was very supportive and had forgiven him for committing the offences. 'Apart from the harm [Tsang] has done to the victim, the church, and his family, the biggest punishment [Tsang faced] would be the betrayal over his faith and religion,' the barrister said. Judge Chan adjourned sentencing until October 31, pending psychiatric, psychological and background reports on Tsang. He also called for a social welfare report on the victim to find out how she had been affected by the assaults.
