Edison Chen photo scandal
Edison Chen - Wikipedia
The star at the heart of a sex scandal which has gripped China told a court today that it was "a very huge shock" when thousands of photographs of him in bed with women including well-known Hong Kong actors and singers surfaced on the web. Edison Chen was testifying against a man accused of accessing his laptop, which held the shots. The Chinese-Canadian actor and singer quit the entertainment business last year, after weeks of lurid headlines and pictures in Hong Kong erased his previously clean-cut image. The story became such an obsession that it crashed several servers and prompted the intervention of the territory's Catholic bishop, who urged people not to forward the photographs. On the mainland, some pages discussing the scandal received more than 25m hits. Chen, who fled to his childhood home of British Columbia after the affair shattered his career, attended a Vancouver courtroom today to testify against Ho Chun Sze.

Police say the images were illegally copied from the star's laptop while being serviced. Chinese authorities have charged several people for circulating the photos taken from the year-old actor.
Many local newspapers headlined the story consecutively during the first fortnight of February , relegating coverage of the Chinese winter storms to secondary prominence during Chinese New Year. In a crackdown which itself became a controversial item, the Hong Kong police enlisted the assistance of Interpol to stem the spread of the photographs. The police crackdown raised questions over violations of the privacy and free speech rights of Internet users.
