HK 'Dog Man' jailed for voodoo ritual sex

Fails to work his magic on judge

Build a business case: developing custom apps

A Hong Kong self-proclaimed voodoo master dubbed the "Dog Man", who engaged in ritual sex with a gullible 20-year-old student, has failed to work his magic on a judge and will spend the next 21 months behind bars.

Acoustics technician Lo Fuk-yee, 64, was arrested last October on two counts of "obtaining unlawful sexual intercourse under false pretenses" after he persuaded his unnamed victim that sex was the only way to expel "ghost embryos" from her body.

The girl was prompted to call in Lo by his girlfriend and co-defendant, 47-year-old Wong Mei-yin. On 4 October last year, Wong visted the girl's flat at her request, after the latter explained she "felt the presence of spirits in her sister's bedroom and often got ill after having sex with her boyfriend", and also "experienced abdominal pains during menstruation".

Lo then turned up and prescribed sex to exorcise the spirits responsible. The student "slept with Wong twice on October 4 and 6", HK's The Standard explains.

The victim later realised she'd been conned after reading about a similar case. Sentencing Lo, Judge Poon Siu-tung said he'd "taken advantage of the victim's superstitious beliefs to fulfill his sexual desires".

He said: "Such an act is shameful and the defendant showed no regret for his action."

Wong was found not guilty. The judge noted that "a diary police found in Wong's ... residence last year indicated she could also have been one of the victims". ®
