The Obscene Articles Tribunal yesterday upheld its ruling that a magazine photo showing singer Gillian Chung Yan-tung changing her clothes was indecent. The tribunal rejected the argument by Easy Finder magazine that the pictures were not indecent because they showed no intimate parts of the Twins star's body. It said pictures were presented with text that was 'extremely detailed, graphic and provocative' and meant to be sexually arousing and pornographic. In that context, it was not necessary for nipples to be shown for the material to be indecent, presiding magistrate Selwyn Hanson Au See-hin wrote in an 11-page judgment handed down yesterday. Mr Au and four adjudicators, two men and two women, unanimously turned down the application lodged by Easy Finder last month for a review of the tribunal's interim decision classifying the issue as Class II indecent, meaning it should not have been sold to anyone under the age of 18. Senior counsel Gerard McCoy, for the magazine, had appealed on the grounds that no part of Chung's breast was visible in any of the long-range, grainy and blurry photos, except possibly an upper quarter, and she was always in a bra. The text associated with the pictures - taken secretly in the star's dressing room - was about the duo's concert at a Malaysian venue and invasion of privacy did not make the picture indecent, he argued. But Mr Au said in the judgment that the 'dominant effect as a whole', including the text and photos, should be considered. 'The tribunal believed that the moral standard society seeks was not solely on whether nipples were shown, but it also included the meaning behind the picture,' he wrote. The nine pictures gave readers the impression they were actually there, peeping through a keyhole, he said.
