City University has set up a committee to look into whether it mishandled a fraud case involving a former assistant professor, who this month was given a suspended jail term over a HK$958,518 information technology contract. Vivienne Wee had declared a conflict of interest from the start, the court heard. In sentencing her, the judge called her a victim of the incompetence of the university's finance office.
