South China Morning Post Publishers' chairman Kuok Khoon Ean announced yesterday that Thomas Abraham has decided to step down as the Post's editor.

Mr Abraham will assume the role of editorial adviser to the publisher, Thaddeus Thomas Beczak, until August 31.

Mr Kuok said that over the past two years Mr Abraham had initiated positive changes and ideas in consolidating the position of the Post as Hong Kong's leading English-language newspaper, as well as the most trusted and authoritative source on mainland China.

'The board and management are very grateful to Tom for his contributions and wish him all the very best in his future endeavours,' Mr Kuok said.
