In view of the dire financial crisis, would someone kindly advise me whether the loan which Hong Kong advanced for the Vietnamese refugees on behalf of the United Nations years ago has been repaid?


If it hasn't, the government should be chasing the loan without ado and at double speed. I believe the UN refused or rather delayed in repaying, claiming that Hong Kong was 'too wealthy' and could afford the loan.


Clearly now it would have no more excuse to delay repayment.
