Victoria, BC –Court-ordered conditions have been issued for Kit Wong, a 70-year-old Esquimalt man facing four charges of sexual assault.
The charges relate to Wong’s work as an acupuncturist, massage and traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, from his home-based business in Esquimalt. Wong also served as an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. Although not a member of the medical staff, Wong practiced traditional Chinese medicine on service members.
Wong was arrested Tuesday, and released on bail with conditions yesterday after appearing before a judge.
