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. Chen admitted being the author and copyright owner of most of the photographs, and stated that the private photographs had been stolen and published illegally without his consent. He made a public apology, especially to the women involved, and also announced that he would "step away indefinitely" from the Hong Kong entertainment industry. In November , Chen purchased a pink PowerBook personal computer, a photograph of which he published on his blog.

On Sunday, pictures of a young man and woman seemingly taken during sexual intercourse, appeared on a popular news discussion forum. The images were quickly removed from the site, but copies quickly circulated through email and were reposted to some other Websites. A day later more appeared. These seem to show Chen receiving oral sex from television actress Bobo Chan and others with Chen and Chung in different positions. Representatives of the stars in question insist the photos are doctored and are seeking legal advice.

When the Edison Chen photo scandal made headlines in Hong Kong over a decade ago, I was 11 years old, somewhat perplexed by what I was seeing in our media. I am a fan of Gillian Chung, and I remember feeling it was odd that she had to apologise and endure so many professional consequences for doing nothing wrong. I wanted to say something about it, but I was an year-old girl, a bit too obsessed with pop stars. So I kept silent.

On 12 March , after Chen had appeared at a publicity event in Singapore, a threatening letter said to have originated in the US containing a bullet was delivered to a Cable TV station mailbox. I dare not say, because I don't want to die before Edison does.
