Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data, Stephen Wong Kai-yi, said today the privacy watchdog has recently received 130 complaints from policemen and their family members that their personal data were being revealed on the internet, while there were 36 complaints from people who suspect that health care staff passed on their data to police without authorization.

Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong lawmaker Elizabeth Quat met with Wong at the privacy commissioner's office today.

Quat asked the watchdog to contact and follow up on the complaints, review the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance's effectiveness in combating and punishing cyberbullying and consider amendments.
