Lawmakers asked to clarify donations
(07-30 13:30)

Ip Kwok-him, chairman of the Legco committee on members' interests, said the complaints by lawmakers from the Federation of Trade Unions will not be entertained, as the letter he received did not name the lawmakers involved.
Ip said Alan Leong Kah-kit of Civic Party has already clarified the donation and will only need to provide further documents. The other four lawmakers will be required to clarify, Ip said.
Civic Party's Leong and Claudia Mo Man-ching, League of Social Democrats' Leung Kwok-hung, the Labour Party's Lee Cheuk-yan and Democratic Party's James To Kun-sun were said to have received donation from Next Media boss Jimmy Lai Chee-ying.
FTU's Wong Kwok-hing said he may ask to invoke the Powers and Privileges Ordinance for an inquiry.
