[1] The Medical Board posted the following notice in the April 26, 1940 issue of the Hong Kong Government Gazette:
Medical Board
No.483 - At an Inquiry held by the Medical Board on the 20th March, 1940, a resolution was duly passed that it had been proved to the satisfaction of the Board that Dr. Pang Iu Ki of No. 13 Wongneichong Road, Happy Valley, Hong Kong, had signed certificates of inoculation for cholera and vaccination in blank and permitted his dresser to deal with the same as he saw fit and that, in relation to the facts so proved to the satisfaction of the Board, the said Dr. Pang Iu Ki had been guilty of infamous conduct in a professional respect and that he be censured in respect thereof.
By Order of the Board,
M.M. Watson,
Hon. Secretary.
24th April, 1940
In 1940, a total of four doctors were found guilty of the same charges, and they were:  Pang Iu-ki 彭耀基, Wong Yu-lung 黄裕綸, Hung Men-sau 洪明修 and So Ping-lun 蘇炳麟. All, except Pang, whose case was the first to be exposed, were disqualified and no longer permitted to practice in Hong Kong. Pang was only censured for his misconduct. Pang's case might have triggered an across-the-broad investigation by the Medical Board; exactly how many doctors were investigated is unknown. The three struck-offs were the only ones that had been published in the entire period contemplated by this dictionary.
