Suspicious cheques given to three groups on march Three groups that took part in the July 1 rally have received suspicious cheques. The Civil Human Rights Front, the League of Social Democrats and the Confederation of Trade Unions, each received a cheque for HK$50,000 in their donation boxes during the march. They were from a paper products company but bore signatures without a company seal and were post-dated. The company denied it had made any donations and said three chequebooks mailed to it by a bank might have been stolen. Travel levy suspended The Travel Industry Compensation Fund levy, which is now 0.15 per cent of outbound fares, would be suspended immediately, a government spokesman said yesterday. That would help cut travel agents' costs during the downturn, he said. The levy would resume if the fund fell below HK$400 million. It pays outbound travellers on package tours in the event of a default by travel agents.
