Judge's place for former top prosecutorCentral Station | Phoenix Un 3 Jan 2018
Keith Yeung Kar-hung, a former director of public prosecutions, is set to become a deputy judge in the Court of First Instance tomorrow and a formally a High Court judge later.
Yeung, 52, has been spending time with his family since leaving his post at the Department of Justice in September 2016. He told colleagues at his farewell party that he could not devote enough time to his family due to his hectic work life. And he was hoping to make up for some of that by helping his daughter prepare for her Diploma of Secondary Education examination.
Yeung, who has a reputation for being kind-hearted, read law at the University of Hong Kong and qualified as a barrister in 1987. He became a senior counsel in 2009 and joined the prosecutions division four years later.
He worked for Gary Plowman SC Chambers and specialized in civil and criminal law with particular focus on commercial crime and security and market misconduct.
