Missing Teresa Cheng must be seen to serve justice

41 0 0

The credibility and impartiality of the Department of Justice is on the line but Teresa Cheng Yeuk-wah is nowhere to be seen. The secretary for justice is on holiday until the end of this month. Well, work-life balance, you know, it’s important.

After a four-year investigation, her department and the Independent Commission Against Corruption have decided not to prosecute former chief executive Leung Chun-ying for conflict of interest over a HK$50 million payment.

This is surely one of the most important decisions made by the department under Cheng. The public deserves a proper explanation beyond an “I say so” response from officials, at a time when another former chief executive is still doing time for misconduct in public office.

People may disagree over the merits........
