MMT rejects SFC application to vary investigation costs order in Fujikon case
Market Misconduct Tribunal, 26-Aug-2019
MMT fines H&H (1112) and its Chairman HK$1.6m each for late disclosure of inside information
SFC, 25-Jun-2019
For the 3rd time, the MMT gets it wrong by penalising shareholders for the wrong-doing done to them. This follows Yorkey (2788) in Feb-2017 and Fujikon (0927) in Apr-2019. In each case, the company's failure to disclose was entirely due to the negligence of the directors involved and they should have paid all the fines and expenses. Both the Fujikon and H&H cases were settlements agreed with the SFC, so the SFC has allowed directors to shift part of the burden of their wrong-doing onto shareholders by using company funds. This has to stop.

MMT fines Fujikon (0927), its CEO and CFO HK$1.5m for late disclosure of inside informationMMT report, 22-May-2019
SFC, 12-Apr-2019
This endorsed settlement between the SFC and the defendants is unfair to outside shareholders because they will indirectly bear the cost of fines and expenses charged to the company for wrong-doing against the shareholders, namely the failure by the directors to cause the company to publish information on time. If the D&O insurance policy doesn't cover it, then we call on the offending directors to reimburse the company in full. Webb-site founder David Webb is a 10% shareholder of Fujikon.

Andrew Left and the right to be wrong
We take a close look at the Market Misconduct Tribunal's report on Mr Left's erroneous criticism of China Evergrande (3333), and what that says about free speech amongst participants in the HK market. (23-Oct-2016)

SFC, 15-Jan-2016
This is a landmark ruling because, if the SFC can go to court with a civil case for the consequences of insider dealing, then this avoids the bottleneck of the Market Misconduct Tribunal.

Chaoda (0682): MMT proceedings against Chairman and Executive Director
Company announcement, 30-Sep-2011
Under the Listing Rules, these proceedings should have been announced when they were first known to the directors concerned. The referral by the Financial Secretary to the MMT was dated 25-Jul-2011, so they knew by then. The SFC also knew: they investigate cases before referring them to the Financial Secretary. The SFC should have informed the Stock Exchange which would then require the company to announce the FS's referral to the MMT. What we have here is a failure to communicate.
