Press Statement by the Urban Renewal Authority

In response to media enquiries on a case of the District Court today (Tuesday) in connection with URA projects, a spokesman of the Urban Renewal Authority issues the following statement :-

"The Urban Renewal Authority attaches great importance to the honesty of its staff, the integrity of its operation procedure and the need to protect sensitive information in order to safeguard against any abuse of its compensation policy.

The Authority commends the ICAC for its success in this investigation and hopes that the verdict today would pose a deterrent to those who intend to conspire in abusing the Authority's compensation policy.

The Authority is seeking further assistance from the Corruption Prevention Department of the ICAC in reviewing its operation procedures in order to minimise opportunities of corruptive abuses and to detect fraudulent behaviour through more effective supervisory measures."
