In the first conviction since the ban on e-cigarettes was announced last month, a 26-year-old man was fined HK$5,000 today at the West Kowloon Magistrates' Courts for carrying nicotine-laced electronic cigarettes.
Tsu Yan-kin was found guilty of three charges, including selling an unregistered pharmaceutical product, illegal sales and possession of part 1 poisons.
The accused was detected by police in September last year in Mong Kok, when he was attempting to deliver e-cigarettes. He had pleaded guilty to the charges.
