Michael Suen testifies at Hui's trial
(07-24 15:06)

A former secretary for housing, planning and lands has told the corruption trial of former chief secretary Rafael Hui Si-yan that he doesn't recall Mr Hui declaring a conflict of interest during discussions on the West Kowloon Cultural District project.
Michael Suen Ming-yeung was the vice-chairman of a steering committee overseeing the arts hub project, while Hui was chairman.
The witness told the High Court he couldn't remember Hui ever declaring a conflict of interest, neither to the steering committee, nor during relevant discussions in the Executive Council.
The prosecution says Hui should have declared millions of dollars in payments made by the co-chairmen of Sun Hung Kai Properties, Thomas Kwok Ping-kwong and Raymond Kwok Ping-luen, as the developer was one of the bidders for the project. --RTHK
