Senior immigration officer Leung Kam-kwong, who died as a result of the arson attack on Immigration Tower in August, has been honoured with the territory's highest bravery award. He is one of six officers who will receive a Chief Executive's Commendation for Government and Public Service for showing exemplary bravery and devotion to duty during the August 2 attack. The awards are to be formally announced today and Tung Chee-hwa will present them to the recipients or their families at Government House on October 14. Leung's family will accept the Gold Medal for Bravery in recognition of the 'bravery and selfless courage' he displayed. The 42-year-old officer was soaked with inflammable liquid when he tried to move a group of right-of-abode claimants out of the building. Ignoring his own safety he tried to stop the attackers from spilling the liquid on others. He was engulfed by flames and suffered severe burns, dying in hospital nine days later. He was one of 50 people hurt in the attack. Abode-seeker Lam Siu-sing, 26, died the same day as Leung. 'By voluntarily putting his own life in extreme danger in order to fulfil his duty and to help save others, Mr Leung showed selfless bravery and the noblest quality of a public servant,' the citation says. Immigration officer Choi To has been awarded the Silver Medal for Bravery for showing gallantry of an extremely high order during the fire. He was badly burnt. All of the injured have now been discharged from hospital. Four other officers - senior immigration assistant Hui Chun-kit, immigration assistant Mak King-yeung, acting senior immigration officer Fung Tai-kwong, and immigration officer Lo Shu-tsun - were awarded the Bronze Medal for Bravery in recognition of their exemplary acts of gallantry displayed during the blaze, which spread through a floor of immigration headquarters in Wan Chai. Five more officers were awarded the Chief Executive's Commendation for Government/Public Service: immigration officer Chow Chuk-yuk and Chan Chi-san, senior immigration officers Choi Yue-ning and Tam Kwok-ming, and senior immigration assistant Kong Yiu-ming. They were commended for the exemplary selflessness, courage and professionalism they displayed in the discharge of their duties during the fire. The chairman of the Immigration Service Officers' Association, William Chiu See-wai, and the chairman of the Hong Kong Immigration Assistants' Union, Ma Chiu-mo, said last night they were pleased the officers' bravery was being recognised.
