Hong Kong’s biggest corruption case in history involving the co-chairmen of Sun Hung Kai Properties is set to be tried in May next year.

The listing was conducted at a close-door hearing at the High Court on Wednesday morning.

The criminal trial of the high-profile scandal involving brothers Thomas Kwok Ping-kwong and Raymond Kwok Ping-luen will take place between early May and mid-August for an estimated 70 days. The Kwok brothers and former chief secretary Rafael Hui Si-yan have been charged with bribery.

The ICAC alleges that, between 2000 and 2009, Hui took more than HK$34 million in bribes, and the rent-free use of a flat in Happy Valley, from four other defendants in return for favours.

The pre-trial review is set for September 3.
