25th November 2021 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong Customs today arrested a male director of a healthcare centre suspected of having applied false trade descriptions to the wart removal treatments supplied by the centre, in contravention of the Trade Descriptions Ordinance (TDO).
Customs earlier received information alleging that a healthcare centre had falsely claimed itself to be a qualified day procedure centre. Customs later verified with the Department of Health that the healthcare centre did not hold a valid day procedure centre licence and had never submitted any application for such a licence.
After investigation, Customs officers today arrested a 43-year-old male director of the healthcare centre.
An investigation is ongoing and the arrested man has been released on bail pending further investigation.
