High-profile graft trial begins
(06-05 14:15)

The prosecution has opened its case in one of Hong Kong's most high-profile trials.
A former chief secretary, Rafael Hui Si-yan, and the co-chairmen of Sun Hung Kai Properties, Thomas Kwok Ping-kwong and Raymond Kwok Ping-luen, deny corruption charges.
David Perry, QC, told the High Court that it was essentially an "easy to follow" case that could be described in a few sentences.
He said it was about "the standard of integrity in public life, the concealment of important information from public view," and "the secret and disguised payment to a very very senior public official involving an abuse of office." --RTHK
