Australia Media: Leung Chun-ying Received Secret Pay-out
of $A 7 Million
In the moment of confrontation between Hong Kong people
and the government for democratic universal suffrage, Hong
Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying was exposed by an
investigation by Australian based Fairfax Media.
Foreign media covered the story causing
a uproar of public opinion.
On Oct. 8, Fairfax Media reported that Leung Chun-ying took
secret rewards from an Australian listed company before
assuming office as Hong Kong’s Chief Executive.
“Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying questioned
on $A dollar secret payment from Australian company”.
The report said that in December 2011 Australian company
UGL had quietly paid HK $ 50 million or $A 7 million to
Leung Chun-ying in return for his cooperation in consultancy
He would help retain staff, and offer no competition when
UGL purchased DZT Holdings, a British company;
Leung Chun-ying served as a director of DTZ and chairman
of its Asia-Pac operations when he and fellow board members
appointed administrators to sell the company’s assets to UGL
for £76 million.
It seems DTZ executives didn’t know of the payout to Leung
Chun-ying as the money was deducted through the acquisition.
It’s also said that UGL paid by instalment in 2012 and 2013
when Leung Chun-ying served as Hong Kong Chief Executive.
Global Media Guess at What Happened to Kim Jong Un
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s whereabouts is being
focused on by global media.
It has been one month since Kim Jong-un’s disappearance
from public view.
The rumor he was toppled caused a great reaction.
The global media are guessing and commenting whether he
is sick, deposed or having a temporary break backstage.
US Los Angeles Times said Kim’s absence from the Sept. 25
gathering of the parliament fueled speculation by observers that
he has been deposed by a coup.
US Washington Times reported, North Korea has recently
banned travel to the capital city Pyongyang.
Analysts are of the opinion that this sort of action indicated
an attempted coup or that authorities have uncovered a plot.
