Statement from ICAC Commissioner


The following statement is issued today (January 7) by ICAC Commissioner Simon Peh Yun-lu:

“I visited a restaurant in Wan Chai briefly, shortly after 6:00 pm on January 3 and left soon after a few words of congratulations without having a meal.

As ICAC Commissioner, I deeply regret for the incident as it happened at a time when all sectors in Hong Kong are fighting the epidemic together. I wish to sincerely apologise to the Central Government, the Chief Executive, ICAC colleagues and all citizens of Hong Kong for my personal behaviour which has placed additional burden to the epidemic prevention work.

I will fully cooperate with arrangements made by the Centre for Health Protection and undergo quarantine at the Penny Bay’s Quarantine Centre.”
