Liaison Office director slammed
(04-16 16:45)

The Director of Beijing's Liaison Office in Hong Kong, Zhang Xiaoming, has been criticized for taking part in an event celebrating the 22nd anniversary of the establishment of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong.
During the event on Tuesday, he sang a song to help raise money for the party.
But the founding chairman of the Democratic Party, Martin Lee Chu-ming, on Wednesday accused Zhang of meddling with politics in Hong Kong.
Top Hong Kong officials also attended Tuesday's event. They included the Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor and the Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah. --RTHK
