Sire Ma (馬賽) faced immense pressure since the online leakage of her intimate lingerie dance video. The video was filmed by Sire's ex-lover, who denied releasing the video to the public.
While the police is investigating the person behind the video’s release, Sire is taking legal action against the Hong Kong tabloids that violated her confidentiality by disclosing her private photos and video clips.
Sire is suing Hong Kong publications Next Media, Apple Daily, Face, and Sudden Weekly. She asked the court to stop them from publishing more of her private content and to hand over the copies that are already published.
Furthermore, Sire accused the tabloids of working together as a team to seize private information, which is a breach of confidentiality. Thus, she demanded a compensation fee.
According to a Jayne Stars article, the case has been scheduled to be heard at the High Court of Hong Kong.
When asked to comment on the situation, Sire expressed, “Many thanks to the Hong Kong police team, privacy commissioner, lawyers, and other various legal teams for their hard work. Things have now entered the judicial process. Hong Kong’s society is ruled by law, and I believe that the law can protect every citizen. Thanks for the concern.”
