A former Hong Kong care home warden has denied sexually assaulting a visually impaired schoolmate on five occasions, starting in 1982 when she was seven years old.
Prosecutors on Monday opened their case against Cheung Kin-wah, 57, and summoned his complainant, 44, who accused him of kissing, groping and grinding up on her while they were at school and camp more than 30 years ago.
The District Court heard that the alleged assaults led the school's principal at the time to demand Cheung's departure in March 1987, following a social worker's intervention. The complaint was not reported to the police until mid-October 2016 when the woman identified Cheung on the news as the man who had assaulted her years ago.
Cheung, the former superintendent of the now-defunct Bridge of Rehabilitation Company, has a clear criminal record.
