Eric Tsang Knocks Down Sexual Harassment Claims: “I Respect Women; Come Investigate Me!”
Facing building sexual harassment claims, 64-year-old Eric Tsang (曾志偉) held a press conference today to clear his name. Accompanied by his son, Eric stated the claims that he had raped Yammie Lam (藍潔瑛) are “completely falsified!” He said, “Respecting women is my principle. I am willing to accept any investigation.”
Last week, a re-edited video circulated suggesting that the men who had raped retired actress Yammie Lam (藍潔瑛) thirty years ago were Eric Tsang and the late actor, Alan Tang (鄧光榮). In addition, the former Chairman of Ford Models in Asia Grace Han (韓穎華) claimed that Eric Tsang had tried to spike the drink of one of her trainees at a karaoke bar, and that he is a well-known sexual predator in the entertainment industry.
Eric Tsang to Press Charges
Eric is officially pressing charges against Grace Han for slandering his reputation. To prove his innocence, he is willing to cooperate with any investigations.
Furthermore, old rumors about the Hong Kong Star Soccer Team making sexual endeavors while traveling for one of their games, were dug up recently. As a member of the soccer team, Eric felt a need to clarify the rumors. “We pressed charges against these claims in 2006 and won the case. I can’t believe that someone will still use this rumor to smear us again.”
Eric said, “This incident made me deeply aware that if I tolerate the allegations, it will just make cyber violence become worse and harder for the truth to surface. Although this make a momentary impact on the Internet, it can damage the involved person(s) for life. I hope such incidents become less frequent. As this case has entered legal proceedings, I will no longer [publicly] talk about it anymore.”
Grace Han: “Eric Tsang is Despicable!”
On January 11, Grace Han called out Eric for his sexual advances against a Ford Model trainee in the past. Through the public shaming, Grace hopes to raise awareness and escape similar sexual endeavors. Grace said, “The despicable man did not commit just one [indecent] act. I hope more victims can step forward to press charges. Like the despicable Hollywood film producer who now faces legal charges!”
Grace is unafraid of Eric pressing charges against her. As she is already in her seventies, she felt that even if she sacrifices herself to reveal Eric for his despicable actions, it is worth it.
Grace added, “Since the incident already happened, [he] should face the consequences. If the despicable man is willing to apologize to Yammie Lam, then he will have a more positive image and his wife and children’s [defensive] actions [are unnecessary]. The despicable man has committed many terrible acts and will not stop now. His wife and children are just expecting the [worst].”
