The Judiciary Police have confirmed the arrest of a woman surnamed Ng in a case that involves two senior officials at an unnamed bank in Macao, TDM reports.
Earlier on Friday, and citing anonymous sources, the news outlet Plataforma claimed that the woman was Bobo Son Po Ng, the owner and director of Chinese-language newspaper Hou Kong Daily.
The police did not give a reason for the woman’s detention, other than to confirm that it was not related to work in the media, Plataforma says.
Law enforcement officials are reportedly withholding further details as the case is “still under investigation.”
Founded in 2008, Hou Kong is considered Macao’s fourth largest Chinese newspaper after Macao Daily News, Va Kio Daily and Shi Min Daily.
The newspaper belongs to the same media group as another local Chinese-language publication, Tai Chung Daily.
