The government has appointed Donald Tong Chi-keung (唐智強), Commissioner for Labour, to take up the post of Permanent Secretary for the Environment/Director of Environmental Protection on 19 September to replace the retiring Anissa Wong Sean-yee (王倩儀).

Carlson Chan Ka-shun (陳嘉信), Private Secretary to the Chief Executive, will assume the post of Commissioner for Labour on 6 October.

 

New police watchdog head assures impartiality

Former deputy commissioner of the Customs and Excise Department Yu Koon-hing (俞官興) has assumed role as new secretary general of the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC).

Yu dismissed worries that his background from the Disciplined Services will hinder the police watchdog’s integrity, stressing that his experience will instead help him “better understand the complaints.”

Yu replaced Ricky Chu Man-kin (朱敏健) who has been rehired by the Independent Commission Against Corruption to head the investigation team on the government sector.
