Post-script:

Determined to plug legal loopholes identified in the course of the Godber investigation, the Government repealed the provisions concerning the period allowed for making representations on the source of income under Section 10 of the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance. The successful conclusion of the case rebutted criticism that the ICAC would only catch flies, but not tigers. It also helped the ICAC win recognition and faith among the public. As Mr Yang remarked, this case was not only an important milestone for the Commission, but also was instrumental in restoring public confidence in the Government and the justice system.
