HIT denies boss linked to contract, but admit administrative error
(04-03 17:25)

Hong Kong International Terminals (HIT) says a report that its managing director, Gerry Yim Lui-fai, is a board member of one of the contractors involved in a pay dispute with dockers is false. The report had angered the strikers at the Kwai Tsing terminal.
Yim had earlier said that the contractors -- not HIT -- should negotiate with the workers. A spokesman for the union, Chan Chiu-wai, called on Yim to immediately clarify his position. The strike is now in its seventh day, RTHK reports.
Speaking to reporters, Yim reiterated that no members of top management of Hutchison Whampoa, Hutchison Port Holdings Trust or HIT are board members of any contractors.
Yim said it was a mistake to put Sakoma -- a unit of HIT previously dealt with out-sourcing contracts -- on the entry passcards.
Hutchison Logistics, replacing Sakoma, is now responsible for management of out-sourcing, Yim added.
