Wong Tin-chi, 61, taxi driver

Now he can say anything. It's meaningless. His apology came too late. He must reveal the names of the people he benefited from to give the public an answer.

Ms Chu, clerk in her 30s

He apologised and gave up the Shenzhen flat only because of public pressure. But this can somehow save the government's image. It's unimportant to know the names of the tycoons who treated him, because no matter who did it, it was wrong for him to accept anyway.

Christine Lui, financial-sector worker

The chief executive should abide by the same rules that the civil servants are bound by. Giving up the Shenzhen flat is only a remedy. If he did not do so, things would only get even more serious.

Carliss Chu, 18, accountant

I won't accept his apology. He should have known better what the city's leader should and should not do. He should step down and tell the public who he benefited from.

Sheir Wing-kee, 50, teacher

I don't think he's sincere in his apology. He's only bowing to public pressure and does not think he has done anything wrong. It will be weird if he continues to act as the chief executive while being investigated by the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

Alfred Wong, 55, maintenance worker

It's too late for anything now. He should have actively and honestly told the public what happened before being questioned. The government will now be less credible, and the ICAC should give the public an answer.
