Seven more arrested for bogus photos of naked Hong Kong stars
Hong Kong (ANTARA News) - Another seven people have been arrested in connection with bogus pictures of prominent pop stars posted onto internet sites, police confirmed Monday.
The arrests followed the court appearance Friday of a 29-year-old man accused of distributed indecent material who was tracked down after police traced an internet address.
The pictures - reproduced on the front pages of Chinese-language newspapers - included video shots ostensibly showing singer Gillian Chung and singer and actor Edison Chen naked on a bed together.
Separately, doctored pictures of Chung`s head pasted onto the seminude body of another woman were posted online and widely picked up by the city`s mass-market newspapers.
The new arrests include five men and two women. Four were released on bail, while three were still detained by police Monday while the investigation continued.
The first of those arrested was remanded in custody for two months by the court last Friday while experts examined the content of this computer, AFP reported.(*) END
