Driven by necessity

With regard to a recent complaint by the public claiming police intercept drivers on the roads to find illegal taxi drivers in the city by checking their mobile devices, Secretary for Security Wong Sio Chak replied that it is necessary for the police to act in this way in order to catch illegal taxi drivers. “We have not reduced manpower to find illegal taxi drivers in the city. In fact, we have increased our police staff to investigate further to tackle this, both by the Public Security Police Force (PSP) and Judiciary Police (PJ),” Mr. Wong said on the sidelines of a public event yesterday.
