    The omission of the subject?

    "Finding those who are behind the copying and distribution of the pictures and bringing them to justice is essential, just as (it) should be the case if private material was stolen from anyone else in Hong Kong. "
    Is the "it" omitted from the underlined sentence?

    No. It is sloppy writing to leave it out, because this is not one of those cases where omission is acceptable.
