Patrick Yu's fate was discussed at a September EOC meeting The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) has been called on to reveal the minutes of the September 18 meeting in which Patrick Yu Chung-yin's fate was discussed. Discrepancies between the accounts of commission members on what was discussed and the decisions made prompted the calls from non-government groups, legislators and academics. One commission member, Chan Yu, was this week branded a liar by new chairman Michael Wong for her account of the meeting. Law Yuk-kai, director of Human Rights Monitor, has asked the commission for a tape of the meeting and the minutes. He also asked for a meeting with Mr Wong for a better understanding of the matter. University of Hong Kong associate professor Carole Petersen said many countries made the minutes of such commissions public. She said it was important to know why Mr Yu was sacked. 'It is not just a contractual dispute if he was fired because of his views about the role of the EOC. If he was fired because he was too assertive and would offend the Hong Kong government, that is a sign the EOC is not as independent as it used to be,' she said. Frontier Party members rallied at the EOC offices yesterday asking for Mr Wong to step down. Frontier legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing said Mr Wong was unsuitable for the job because he sought double benefits - his judicial pension and his current salary of $300,000 per month - from the chief executive before assuming the position, and because of the 'fiasco' over Mr Yu's sacking. Society for Community Organisation director Ho Hei-wah said up to 100 groups would be mobilised to seek Mr Wong's resignation. The Women's Coalition also plans to file a complaint to the Ombudsman and call for a public inquiry into Mr Yu's sacking. A press conference is to be held today. Legislators are to make a request for Mr Wong, former EOC chairwoman Anna Wu and commission members to appear before the home affairs panel on the issue, possibly next week. 'The minutes of the meeting would certainly help in sorting out the factual matters,' legislator Albert Ho Chun-yan said. 'What recently transpired has tarnished the reputation of the EOC.'
