But the anti-graft body says government-business malpractice is already targeted Legislators yesterday called on the Independent Commission Against Corruption to be vigilant against, and take the initiative to prevent, government collusion with big businesses. A week after Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa categorically rejected accusations of collusion - and stated in his policy address that the administration was 'resolutely against' collusion with business - lawmakers asked the ICAC to 'take a close look' at the issue. Accusations of collusion emerged last year in relation to the Cyberport development, which was awarded without open tender to Pacific Century CyberWorks. Doubts also arose over the single-developer approach for the West Kowloon cultural hub, and the sale of unoccupied Hunghom Peninsula buildings to developers who planned to demolish them and build luxury flats. Democrat lawmaker Cheung Man-kwong said he was concerned to see nothing in the ICAC's work plan for the coming year on the issue of collusion, even though it was mentioned in the policy address. He was speaking at a security panel meeting attended by ICAC Commissioner Raymond Wong Hung-chiu. 'There has been much public concern over recent allegations about the Hunghom Peninsula, the Cyberport and the retirement system for senior civil servants, which may lead to collaboration between the business sector and senior government officials,' Mr Cheung said. Mr Wong replied that it was part of the anti-graft agency's 'day-to-day work' to prevent collusion between the business sector and government, and it would continue to discharge this function impartially. 'An even more important role is that of prevention, and we have tried our best to build in a mechanism within government to prevent malpractice,' he said. Mr Wong said the Housing, Planning and Lands Bureau had invited the ICAC to comment on the tendering process for the West Kowloon project, and anti-graft officers had participated in a number of meetings. 'On the question of retired senior officials and their continued employment outside government, we have taken note of the public interest and are prepared to make an input to government,' he said. Earlier in the panel meeting, Democrat Albert Ho Chun-yan questioned Secretary for Security Ambrose Lee Siu-kwong over the decision not to prosecute two Guangdong public security officials who were arrested in Pokfulam in June last year, carrying handcuffs. Mr Lee said he called his counterpart on the mainland as soon as he was told about the arrests. The police investigated the case before transferring the file to the Department of Justice for legal advice. But the justice department concluded there was insufficient evidence to prosecute the men on charges of loitering and possession of an offensive article, he said.
