Police have refused to comment on the brothel parking habits of National Security Director Frederic Choi Chin-pang, claiming Choi’s case is still open and “pending legal advice”.

“As the case is still pending legal advice, we have nothing further to add at the moment,” said a police spokeswoman in response to questions on whether Choi, who was caught in a raid on an unlicensed Wan Chai massage parlour a month ago, had used a government vehicle or triad car jockey services upon his visit.

Triad car jockey services are commonly associated with brothels and massage parlours, operating with impunity yet rarely prosecuted. Several sources had speculated on links between police inaction on car jockey services and senior police using such services.

For example, police recently claimed there were “no criminal acts found” at a Tsim Sha Tsui location exposed by Transit Jam as a long-standing theft from the public purse.

Choi is Hong Kong’s second most senior National Security officer and was decorated by Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor in an honours ceremony this February.

Six women with Hong Kong ID cards were arrested during the raid which netted Choi but earlier this week police claimed Choi had done nothing wrong. The case has been referred to the Commissioner of Police and the Department of Justice for advice.
