The Goddess of Justice may be blind but the government's top prosecutor, Grenville Cross, certainly is not, at least according to Secretary for Justice Elsie Leung Oi-sie. 'Unless he is blind ... I won't interfere with his decisions,' Ms Leung told legislators during a Legco grilling over Mr Cross' decision not to pursue the Cargate scandal against ex-financial secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung. Leung's Lexus purchase before he announced a new car tax, explained Mr Cross, appeared to be a form of misconduct but was not serious enough to prosecute. Lo Down knows little about the law but does have a long memory. Back in 1998, government printer Harris Myers was unceremoniously arrested by Independent Commission Against Corruption officers on his last day of work before retirement for accepting high-quality paper worth $34,000 from a supplier to his department without paying. The guy apparently had a passion for English watercolour artist William Henry Pyne and wanted to print Pyne's reproductions on nothing but the finest papers in a book he was planning on the 19th-century artist. Even the judge in the case said it was more an offence of 'gross stupidity' than corruption, but Myers pleaded guilty, was fined $50,000, lost his gratuity worth about half a million and ended his civil service career with a criminal record. But back to that Lexus 430. The car is certainly a lot weightier than 47 reams of paper, and the ex-finance chief saved $190,000 on it, which is a bit more than $34,000. But hey, who is Lo Down to argue with the government's legal eagles?
