Woman gets com­mu­nity ser­vice for false ID Con­sul­ta­tion paper on CSL ac­qui­si­tion

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION/ DIGEST -

A woman was sen­tenced to 120 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice for fal­si­fy­ing a copy of her iden­tity card in or­der to ap­pear 14 years younger to boost her chances of get­ting a wait­ress­ing job. Lau Kwei-ching, 41, ear­lier pleaded guilty to one count of us­ing a copy of a false in­stru­ment in East­ern Mag­is­trates’ Court. The court heard that Lau changed her birth­day on the copy of her iden­tity card when ap­ply­ing for the job in a Wan Chai restau­rant. As a re­sult, her em­ployer be­lieved she was only 27. Im­mi­gra­tion Depart­ment of­fi­cers de­tected the ir­reg­u­lar­ity dur­ing a check on the restau­rant last month. The Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Author­ity ( CA) has is­sued a con­sul­ta­tion paper to in­vite views from the pub­lic on HKT Ltd’s pro­posal to ac­quire CSL. The deal would en­able PCCW Ltd, the con­trol­ling group of HKT, to have two mo­bile phone op­er­a­tors with a com­bined mar­ket share of 31 per­cent. Mo­bile phone ser­vice li­censees and any stake­hold­ers can sub­mit their views to CA in writ­ten form be­fore Jan 24. CA will eval­u­ate whether the pro­posed deal will dras­ti­cally re­duce com­pe­ti­tion in the tele­com mar­ket and is in the pub­lic in­ter­est.
