24 Nov 2020

Alleged Hong Kong gangster “Shanghai Boy” Kwok Wing-hung remained in police custody on Monday following his airport arrest over the weekend when he returned to the city after being on the run for two years.

Kwok, 62, arrived on a flight from Bangkok and was detained by police officers from the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau, which had been expecting him, a force insider said. It is believed the flight originated in Dubai.

He was intercepted at the immigration counter after being screened for the coronavirus, and was then taken to the airport police station upon testing negative. Police arrested Kwok on suspicion of conspiracy to wound, criminal damage and criminal libel.

A source said on Monday he would continue to be in custody.
