MTRC faces grilling over rail link saga
(05-05 11:04)

Transport secretary Anthony Cheung Bing-leung and executives from the MTR Corporation will be questioned by legislators today over the delays to the high-speed rail line to Guangzhou.
Last month, the MTRC said operation of the link would be postponed by at least a year to 2017.
Some legislators have claimed that the government and the MTRC have conspired to cover-up the setbacks to the project.
An independent panel has been set up to look into the controversy.
But there was fresh embarrassment when an academic appointed to lead the probe resigned just hours after it was revealed that he is on the board of one of the project's main contractors. --RTHK
