2021-9-19


ICAC Commissioner Mr Simon Peh Yun-lu this (September 19) morning visited the Commission’s Operations Control set up for the Election Committee Subsector Elections, and noted that the ICAC would ensure a clean and fair election through a comprehensive three-pronged strategy integrating enforcement, prevention and education.

For the first public election under the improved electoral system, in addition to its established investigative group tasked for handling election-related complaints, the ICAC’s Operations Department has strengthened its manpower to take robust enforcement actions against any corrupt and illegal conduct in breach of the electoral law, including those which may constitute manipulating or sabotaging the elections, and the publishing of alleged illegal content in relation to the elections via the Internet, etc.

The Operations Department has also set up an Operations Control which will closely monitor any corrupt and illegal conduct in relation to the elections and coordinate the work of the ICAC’s various departments as well as communications with other government bodies.

On the preventive front, officers of the ICAC’s Corruption Prevention Department today visited some of the polling stations to observe the voting and counting procedures, with a view to recommending graft preventive and enhancement measures for future elections if necessary.

Officers of the ICAC’s Community Relations Department also stationed at the Operations Control to answer public enquiries about the Elections (Corrupt and Illegal Conduct) Ordinance and clean election messages made on the ICAC’s enquiry hotline (2920 7878).
