Hui bonus paid 'to avoid miserly image'
(06-10 13:07)

The High Court has heard that the co-chairman of Sun Hung Kai Properties, Raymond Kwok Ping-luen, paid a hefty bonus to former chief secretary, Rafael Hui Si-yan, so the company wouldn't appear 'miserly'.
The prosecution at their corruption trial said Kwok had told the ICAC that he gave more than HK$4-million as a bonus after Hui ended his consultancy contract early.
Kwok said this was to avoid giving the impression that the property developer was "miserly, mean-spirited, and down-right ungrateful". --RTHK
