Academic acquitted of indecent assault
(08-05 18:40)

The Eastern Court has acquitted a former dean of the University of Hong Kong's arts faculty, Professor Lee Ngok, of molesting two of his subordinates over a three-year span to 2010.
Prosecutors had alleged that the 73 year-old academic had molested the two female staff on eight occasions, either in his office or at bars.
But Magistrate So Wai-tak decided to give Professor Lee the benefit of the doubt, after ruling that one of the alleged victims was not an honest witness, and that evidence of the other victim was doubtful as well. --RTHK
