Tong Fuk prison guards arrested for smuggling porn, phones

Two guards at the Tong Fuk Correctional Institution have been arrested for allegedly smuggling contraband.

The two illegally brought into the prison mobile phones, cigarettes and USB sticks containing pornographic photos and videos, Oriental Daily reports.

ICAC and the Correctional Services Department carried out a joint investigation into the case and arrested the pair on October 23.

In another incident at the medium-security jail last week, a man imprisoned for his role in the 2016 Mongkok riot was attacked in a prison workshop.

The 34-year-old man victim, Lo Kinman, was taken to the hospital for assessment. He had been sentenced to seven-year term two years ago for rioting – one of the longest sentences handed out to demonstrators in Hong Kong’s spate of protests over the last six years.

The alleged assailant was a 32-year-old Vietnamese national serving time for immigration offences.
