Former ATV executive director James Shing Pan-yu broke his silence after resigning from the trouble-plagued broadcaster on Saturday. Shing spoke to the press at a United Youth Association event at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai. "For 3-1/2 years I led 800 colleagues and I fought until the moment I left. I have no regrets," he said. Shing was ordered to resign by the Communications Authority after he was found to have breached the terms of the broadcaster's licence by allowing investor Wong Ching to exercise de facto control over it. The authority also fined ATV HK$1 million. Shing refused to respond to queries about other issues at the station. "Now I am not in the [station's] management team, I haven't got much to do with ATV," he said. "You could say I'm management-turned-fan. I hope the station's staff will not become discouraged, because ATV can grow amid all the difficulties." He had no comment on ATV's financial situation. It has yet to pay the HK$1 million fine. And he hoped the situation at ATV would improve. "There's no need to get entangled in [other issues about ATV]. Let's look ahead," he said. Earlier, Commerce Minster Greg So Kam-leung said the fine had not been paid to the Communication Authority. An authority spokesman said ATV should pay on or before September 22 or the penalty could go up.
