Anson Chan plays down donation reports
(07-22 13:03)

A former chief secretary, Anson Chan Fong On-sang, who is also the convener of the think tank Hong Kong 2020, has played down concern over reports that she and others in the pan-democratic camp had received large sums of donation from local media tycoon Jimmy Lai Chee-ying.
According to leaked documents posted online and emailed to media organizations last night, Lai had allegedly donated more than HK$40 million to the camp since April 2012.
This included HK$3.5 million to Chan over the past two years.
Chan said she saw nothing wrong with political parties and individuals receiving donations without conditions. --RTHK
