Couple fined $5,000 each for having sex in public

14 March 2024


Couple leaves court hand in hand

A Filipino couple charged with indecency in public were fined $5,000 each today at the Eastern Court after they admitted having sex at midnight in a playgroud in Sai Wan.

FA, 43 years old and a bartender; and CRV, aged 32 and a domestic helper; were arrested by police after midnight of Oct 30, 2023 at the Third Street Playground in Sai Wan, Hong Kong.

A witness living in a flat overlooking the playground was closing her window for the night when she saw the two in action at 11:16pm on Oct. 30 and called police.


Two officers arrived at 12:10am and arrested the two on a charge of "committing an act outraging public decency," in violation of Section 148(1) of the Crimes Ordinance.

In mitigation, their defense lawyer attributed the act to impulse.

Magistrate Stephanie Tsui acknowledged the lawyer’s assertion that the two pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity, that they were in a relationship, that they have expressed remorse and that they promised not to do the offense again.


So, Magistrate Tsui added, “I’m willing to give you a second chance” and chose fine as a penalty. The law includes imprisonment of up to six months for such offense.

The two stood side by side as they listened to Magistrate Tsui’s decision. She gave them until 4pm to pay the fine.

After the hearing, they proceeded to the cashier’s office on the 7th floor to pay the fine.

They were holding hands when they left the courthouse.
