Danway Lo Kwok Kuen v HKSARG
HK Court of Appeal, 25-Apr-2017
Mr Lo wins his appeal. After a disciplinary case, he was "compulsorily retired" from the Police in 1999 and subsequently lost a judicial review and was bankrupted after failing to pay costs. 13 years later, he reached the pension age of 55 and the Government tried to deduct 25% of his benefits to settle the outstanding debt of $520k. The CoA rules that there was no secured debt and , having been discharged from bankruptcy, the debt is extinguished and he is entitled to his full pension.
