When pressed for details by a public officer on how he had used up $147,538 in retirement funds within five months, Chan, who was a ComCare applicant, passed a snide remark that humiliated a public officer ans insulted her modesty. He also showed further disrespect when calling the officer a "low class officer".

For using insulting words towards a public service officer, Chan was charged and found guilty. He now have to cough up a $3,000 fine.
