HKSAR v Donald Tsang Yam Kuen
HK Court of First Instance, 6-Mar-2018
Justice Andrew Chan slams the ex-CE for failure to cooperate with the ICAC despite public promises to do so. 1/3 of an estimated HK$15m of prosecution costs in trial 1 are awarded against him. After conviction for misconduct in public office and a hung jury on a bribery charge, he was tried again on that charge and the new jury hung again. It now emerges that in an attempt to influence the jury in trial 2, a PR firm or consultant rustled up the great and good to sit in a reserved section of the public gallery. We note that many of them are the same staunch Catholics from across the political spectrum who attended a church service to pray for him after his conviction. Amongst the congregation was CE-elect Carrie Lam, who now has the power to pardon him.

It will be interesting to see whether the alleged briber, Bill Wong Cho Bau, is prosecuted or testifies under immunity.

Note: the architect involved, Barrie Ho Chow Lai, was also appointed by Donald Tsang as a member of the HK Housing Authority on 1-Apr-2012. We wonder whether Mr Tsang made any disclosure at that time.
