Hui bribes paid as bonus, court hears
(06-06 12:38)

The High Court has heard more details of how the co-chairmen of Sun Hung Kai Properties, Thomas Kwok Ping-kwong and Raymond Kwok Ping-luen, allegedly funneled secret payments to former chief secretary, Rafael Hui Si-yan.
On the second day of the corruption trial, the prosecution said that after Hui worked as a consultant for a subsidiary of Sun Hung Kai Properties for a year, he was paid bribes of more than HK$4 million which were disguised as a bonus.
Head prosecutor David Perry said it was impossible for Hui to provide any consulting services to the developer, after he was sworn in as chief secretary.
Perry also said that Hui signed a 30-month lease contract for a unit in The Leighton Hill with Sun Hung Kai one day before former Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yum-kuen proposed Hui as chief secretary to Beijing.
While Hui was paying HK$160,000 as the monthly rents, SHKP co-chairman Thomas Kwok Ping-kwong had already pay HK$4.7 million to Hui before he was sworn in, Perry said.
