Former Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Donald Tsang Yam- kuen appeared at Eastern Magistracy Monday afternoon to face two counts of misconduct in public office on Oct 5.
Tsang, 70, has been under investigation by Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) since he left office in June 2012. A major charge is in relation to Tsang's failure to disclose his plan to lease a luxury flat in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen which was owned by a major shareholder of the Digital Broadcasting Corporation Hong Kong Limited applying for a license from the HKSAR government, the ICAC said.
