Centers shut in sex case

MACAU'S Education and Youth Affairs Bureau has ordered two local private tutoring centers to be temporarily shut down after it received reports of sex abuse, the Macau Post Daily reported yesterday.

About a dozen schoolboys had allegedly been sexually abused by the owner of the two tutoring centers, which provide tutoring classes to students from local schools, according to the newspaper. The owner is a 27-year-old local resident surnamed Fok.

The two centers were both licensed by the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau in 2006, and were allowed to provide tutoring classes to up to 68 students, according to the bureau's Website.

The abuse allegations arose after one of the bureau's counselors was talking with the schoolboys on Tuesday, and the counselor encouraged the parents of these children to contact the police, the newspaper reported.

Macau's Judiciary Police said last night that they had been unable to track down the whereabouts of Fok.

Some 30 students were studying at the two centers when the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau shut them down.
