Abstract

The author casts a different light on the decision not to prosecute the ‘cargate fiasco” , Antony Leung, the former Financial Secretary, for his purchase of a luxury Lexus vehicle, several weeks before announcing in his budget speech a tax increase on new luxury vehicle registrations, and for his subsequent failure to disclose his conflict of interest in the Executive Council on the day of the budget speech.
