Taoist truck driver guilty of unlawful sex

Victim 'stupid and ignorant' aspiring model

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

The Hong Kong truck driver who persuaded a 19-year-old model he was a Taoist Mao Shan master, with the power to grant her career success in return for sex, has been found guilty of nine counts of "unlawful sexual intercourse under false pretences".

Between April and December 2007, Au Yeung Kwok-fu, 55, indulged in nine powerful rites with the young woman in the form of intercourse and oral sex. She got in the family way, despite Au Yeung's insistence he "had the supernatural power to keep me from getting pregnant", as his victim put it.

She had an abortion, and subsequent tests proved Au Yeung Kwok-fu was the father. He was hauled into court where District Court judge Stanley Chan Kwong-chi, while describing the complainant as "stupid, ignorant and simple-minded in having sex with a man 20 years her senior on the blind faith it would bring her fame and wealth", said she was an "honest witness".

Chan rejected defence claims that "during the sex rituals Au Yeung had no control over his body as he was possessed by his master's spirit", and noted that it was not normal practice for religions to require sex in return for blessings. He added: "If one claims so, it is heresy or a cult, using crooked theories to satisfy one's lust."

The judge yesterday postponed sentencing until January 21, "pending a psychological report". Au Yeung Kwok-fu was remanded into custody, Hong Kong's The Standard concludes. ®
