A former Hong Kong police officer has been jailed for nearly two years for unlawfully borrowing HK$330,000 (US$42,132) from junior colleagues and asking one of them to erase evidence during an investigation by the city’s anti-corruption watchdog.

Ex-station sergeant Wong Chi-ming, 54, had also secured early payment of his pension and a loan from the force’s credit union by concealing outstanding debts that ran up to HK$1.4 million, West Kowloon Court heard on Tuesday.

Deputy Judge Ada Yim Shun-yee said the police veteran should have known not to sacrifice his integrity under any circumstances.

“The defendant served the force for more than 30 years. He should have known the importance of integrity and the consequences of committing a crime,” she said.
