HONG KONG (AFP) – A man who wore women's clothing to use his dead wife's gym membership has appeared in a Hong Kong court, a report said Tuesday.
Lau Siu-wah, 51, was charged after he allegedly used his wife's identification card to exercise in the female-only section of the gym at the city's Sheraton hotel, The Standard daily reported.
But the man's looks aroused suspicion and police were called, the report said, adding that Lau was quickly arrested.
The paper said Lau admitted to police that he used the card to impersonate his wife, who died in 2007.
Lau, who appeared in court Monday in women's clothes and wearing red nail polish, was granted bail on a charge that he used an identity card relating to another person, the paper said.
The case was adjourned until later this month.
