HKMA refers Lehman cases to regulator
(10-17 12:07)

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the city's de facto central bank, referred 24 cases to regulators relating to the sale of investment products guaranteed by the collapsed Lehman Brothers Holding.

The cases involve "alleged mis-selling'' by two licensed banks in Hong Kong, the HKMA said, without naming the lenders.

After reviewing the evidence, the Securities and Futures Commission will consult with the HKMA on whether to impose sanctions, the statement said.

Sanctions may include suspension or revocation of registration, reprimands, fines or prohibition orders, it said.

More than 30,000 individuals in the city bought so-called minibonds, or investments guaranteed by Lehman and linked to the debt of some of the biggest Hong Kong companies.
