HAB's statement on disbursement arrangement of remuneration to Hui Chi-fung
     The Home Affairs Bureau (HAB) today (December 16) made the following statement on the disbursement arrangement of remuneration to Mr Hui Chi-fung.

     The Home Affairs Department has promulgated the Guidelines on the Remuneration Package for Members of the District Councils (DC) of the HKSAR, which set out clear guidelines for the DC members. All DC members are required to observe the Guidelines to ensure the proper use of public funds. A DC member should use public funds in an open, fair and accountable manner. All claims for reimbursements of expenses must be for discharging DC duties.

     On December 3, Mr Hui declared "self-exile" on social media platform and left Hong Kong. Having considered the relevant factors, the HAB considered that it is necessary to withhold the disbursement of honorarium, allowances and expenses reimbursement to Mr Hui from December 3 onwards, to ensure that the relevant arrangements are in compliance with the Guidelines and the public funds are properly used.

     The HAB expresses deep regret over the irresponsible act of Mr Hui.
