Police Must Not Be In Denial About Threats To Hong Kong

It is not entirely clear why distribution of a comprehensive report alerting Hong Kong banks to money laundering linked to human trafficking was blocked. The 24-page document was designed to help financial institutions spot suspicious transactions linked to the illicit trade in people. Sources told the Post it was blocked by top police officers who were concerned it could lead to the city being labelled a human-trafficking hub, a claim repeatedly made by activists and consistently denied by officials. A police spokesman said the report was not published because of “different views received” after it was distributed for comment to members of the unit that prepared it.
