Michael Wong explains why he fired Patrick Yu in report given to lawmakers Key EOC staffer Patrick Yu Chung-yin was sacked because he did not fully appreciate the nature of his job, commission chairman Michael Wong Kin-chow said in a report submitted to the Home Affairs Bureau on Monday. Mr Yu, appointed as operations director by Mr Wong's predecessor, Anna Wu Hung-yuk, was 'terminated prior to his commencement of employment' so as to inconvenience him as little as possible, the report said. 'The concern was that Mr Yu did not fully appreciate what the role of director (operations) entailed, particularly after the press interview he gave before he had even commenced in the job.' Mr Yu granted an interview to the South China Morning Post in July, with Ms Wu's endorsement. The three-page report was drafted by Equal Opportunities Commission legal adviser Alexandra Papadopoulos. The Home Affairs Bureau submitted it to Legco ahead of tomorrow's meeting, where Mr Wong will be asked to explain the controversial sacking. He will also be asked about allegations of impropriety against him and the ensuing damage to the credibility of the commission, which have fuelled calls that Mr Wong step down or be sacked. Ms Papadopoulos wrote that when Mr Wong took over as chairman in August, he undertook a review of the requirements of Mr Yu's director of operations post and decided it ought to be focused more on 'investigation and conciliation'. 'The EOC does not dispute that Mr Yu is a committed human rights advocate and has done much in Northern Ireland to promote race discrimination legislation,' the document says. 'An operational decision was made that early termination of Mr Yu's contract ... was the most appropriate option.... This is strictly a contractual issue.' But the chairman of the Legco home affairs panel, Ip Kwok-him, said he found the report too short and inadequate. 'The panel is still trying to get the chronology and the minutes of the meeting where it was decided Patrick Yu would be fired and we will continue to push for that,' he said. Mr Yu says that on September 16 he was offered two months' compensation for having his contract rescinded. That was two days before the meeting in which Mr Wong first raised the issue with the board of commissioners. But the report claims Mr Wong made the decision following discussions with members. Democrat lawmaker Albert Ho Chun-yan said the report failed to answer key questions about the encounters between Mr Yu, Mr Wong and the commissioners. Responding to suggestions that commission member Raymond Wu Wai-yung may accompany Mr Wong at the panel meeting, Mr Ip said no commission members were invited, as this was a 'Legco meeting, not an EOC meeting'. Liberal Party legislator James Tien Pei-chun said party representatives at the meeting would raise questions about allegations that Mr Wong accepted favours as a judge. Mr Wong has denied the allegations.
