Lam Shiu-kum, 65, a former dean of the University of Hong Kong, arrives with his wife at Eastern Court yesterday, charged with inducing 20 patients to make bill payments to his private company, misconduct in public office and the theft of HK$3.8 million relating to donations. Lam faces 30 counts of fraud, three counts of theft and one count of misconduct in public office. The theft charges relate to allegations regarding donations from three patients. The misconduct charge alleges Lam failed to declare a conflict of interest. Lam did not enter a plea, and Acting Principle Magistrate Tong Man adjourned the case to June 10 in the District Court. He was freed on HK$300,000 bail.
