'Scout' fund-raisers nothing to do with me, lawmaker says Legislator Priscilla Leung Mei-fun yesterday warned the public to be wary of people dressed in scout uniforms trying to raise funds for her. Dr Leung reported the incident to police, and confirmed that she had no links to such alleged fund-raising on her behalf. People had told her that about a dozen people in Scout uniforms had tried to raise funds for her in Kowloon City on Tuesday. But she said neither she nor the Scouts had been fund-raising, and urged the public to contact police about such activities.
