Special session to be held on Tsui

LEGISLATORS inquiring into the dismissal of Alex Tsui Ka-kit will next week hold a special two-day session to prepare key findings for their report.


It is believed the private meeting on Monday and Tuesday will focus on whether there is a need for extra evidence in the review by the Legislative Council's Security Panel.


At present, the panel is seeking further details from the Commissioner of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), Bertrand de Speville, on the terms ''informant'' and ''informer'', to determine whether they have a different meaning in official correspondence.


In past testimony, Mr Tsui has claimed ICAC orders only covered contact with official informers - not informants.


He described his relationship with Boxing Association figure Henfrey Tin as casual and not deserving of filed comment.


Mr de Speville has cited Mr Tsui's links with Tin as a prime reason behind the dismissal.


Mr Tsui, former deputy director of operations, was sacked in November without explanation.


Panel sources, who have grown more irritable over Mr Tsui's evidence in the past months, say that apart from clarifying the terminology, there is little left to probe.
