The former head of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, Ung Vai Meng knew of the illicit hiring practices in place at the bureau, according to the current president of ICM, Leung Hio Ming.
According to broadcaster TDM, Mr. Leung noted that Ung Vai Meng had requested department heads to investigate the issue, noting that the request was brought up during ICM’s bi-monthly meetings starting in the second half of 2015.
The illicit hiring practices were brought to light in a report by local anti-graft watchdog the Commission Against Corruption (CCAC), who slammed ICM, stating it had been using illegal methods to recruit a large number of its workers, some of whom were even relatives of leaders and department chiefs, according to its investigation report, released last Friday.
According to CCAC, the number of workers recruited by the Bureau via acquisition of services once reached one sixth of the department’s total employees in 2014, at 112, with the number dropping to 94 in 2016 when the body commenced its investigations into the bureau.
The current director claims that, despite having worked in the bureau for over 20 years, he only became aware of the contents of the CCAC investigation report last month, the same month he became head of the bureau.
He further added that he had not fully been informed of the details of the report and refused to disclose when the investigation would finish.
