Smuggled animal fur worth HK$37 million seized Customs officers seized smuggled animal fur worth HK$37 million - the largest amount ever found in one operation in Hong Kong. The goods, that included 86,950 pieces of marten fur and 1,590 pieces of fox fur, were in two containers covered by cowhide on a trading vessel. Officers had watched the containers being loaded onto a vessel in Cha Kwo Ling, Kwun Tong, on Thursday, and when the vessel sailed into waters off Tung Lung Chau the following day, officers seized the goods and arrested two women and a man. Superintendent Chong Wai-ming of a customs task force said the goods were being taken to the mainland for further processing and would have been sent to Russia for sale. He said around HK$11 million in tax had not been paid on the fur. Meanwhile, customs officers posed as buyers to raid seven game console retailing shops in Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po. They seized devices worth HK$4,000 that allowed users to play pirated games on consoles. Two salesmen, 25 and 26, were arrested. Last Wednesday, officers seized 52,215 packets of counterfeit tablets, included fake Viagra and Cialis, worth HK$3.31 million, at the airport. The fake goods were destined for Africa. Court order sought to stop TST bar using karaoke music videos Gold Typhoon Entertainment, whose artists include Elva Hsiao and Ronald Cheng Chung-kei, is seeking a court order to stop a Tsim Sha Tsui bar from using three karaoke music videos of its artists. The entertainment company filed for an injunction at the Court of First Instance two days ago against Sopop Industrial (Hong Kong) Company, which owns Club A on Minden Avenue. It demands that Club A stop infringing its copyright by using the videos for three songs - one song each by William So Wing-hong, and Stephy Tang Lai-yan, and another jointly by Kary Ng Yu-fei and Siu Fay, also known as Terence Chiu Chi-long. RTHK ends contract of music programme host RTHK confirmed it ended the contract of music programme host Leung Dont. Until September 4, he was the host of Wednesday episodes of the cultural programme Urban Renaissance and a co-host of the Saturday cultural programme See Saw, both on Radio Two. Leung said the broadcaster's producers had interfered with his choice of music on many occasions, including a ban on his proposal to play a satirical song called Donald Tsang, Please Die on May 16 last year. He said the case cast doubt on the editorial independence of RTHK. The public broadcaster said it terminated Leung's contract because his work performance was unsatisfactory. He had been late for live shows and had failed to meet deadlines, RTHK said. Claim for damages over death of man in flat The administrator of the estate of a man who died while attempting to save his girlfriend - who had fallen unconscious, apparently from an electric shock while taking a bath - is seeking unspecified damages for his death. Leung Siu-lan filed the claim for the death of clerical worker Wong Wing-tung, 22, against Chan Hon-shing and Wong Tong, who formerly traded under the name Tong Kee Metal & Cleaning Appliance. In September 2007, the girlfriend screamed while taking a bath and Wong went to help her. She later regained consciousness but Wong was declared dead after being taken to Cartias Medical Centre. The Mechanical Services Department later said there were problems with electrical installations in the flat.
