It is the most expensive and longest-running inquiry in Hong Kong aviation history - but Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa has yet to decide whether to make its findings public. The Chief Executive's Office is believed to have received the Board of Review's report as long ago as December 15, but a decision has yet to be made on whether it should be publicly released. A spokeswoman for the Civil Aviation Department said whether or not the report was made public 'depends on the chief executive's office'. May Chun Oi-mei, principal information officer for the office, said: 'The chief executive will consider whether to make the report public in accordance with the relevant legislation.' An industry insider said: 'Taxpayers have a strong case for saying the report should be made public immediately. They paid for this investigation - they should see the outcome. 'It has cost tens of millions of dollars in public money, it's a matter of enormous public interest and the arguments have already aired at a public hearing. I can't see a legitimate reason for keeping it secret.'
