The former head of Juno Mak Chun-lung's record label will appear in Eastern Magistrate's Court today, charged with allegedly taking a bribe to change the company's deal with the Canto-pop singer. Former president of Universal Music Limited Chan Sai-ming, commonly known as Chan Siu-po, 49, faces one count of soliciting an $800,000 bribe from To Kit-ho, and one of accepting $680,000 from him between May and July 2003, said the Independent Commission Against Corruption. Mr To, who has not been charged, was a representative of Mellow Studio, which managed Juno. The ICAC alleges that Chan, who recently left Universal, was bribed so that he would approve the early termination of Juno's contract to perform as an artist for Universal, and replace it with a contract for Universal to act instead as a distributor of his records. Two other men arrested as part of the same ICAC investigation were also charged. Choi Hon-wah, 51, a company director, faces one count of bribing Chan with $90,000 on February 21 last year. Choi, who acted as a middle man between Chan and other companies, was said to have paid him so that he would transfer Universal's copyright over certain songs to another firm, Chii Hang International. He also wanted Chan to favour Chii Hang in future negotiations, the ICAC alleges. Cheung Hay-kin, a 41-year-old driver, is accused of disclosing the identity of a person being investigated by the ICAC. It is claimed that Cheung told Ho Lai-chuen, a senior executive of TVB, that he was the subject of a corruption investigation on June 23 last year. The defendants are all free on ICAC bail and will appear at Eastern Magistrate's Court today at 9.30am.
