Ex-director of garment trading company charged with soliciting RMB150,000 bribe and stealing HK$150,000

A former director of a garment trading company was charged by the ICAC yesterday (January 6) with soliciting a bribe of RMB150,000 from a manufacturer and stealing HK$150,000 from his then employer.

Chun Kin-hung, 53, former managing director of Orderly Industrial Limited (Orderly Industrial), faces two charges – one of agent soliciting an advantage, contrary to Section 9(1)(a) of the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance; and one of theft, contrary to Section 9 of the Theft Ordinance.

The defendant will appear at the West Kowloon Magistrates’ Courts tomorrow (January 8) for plea.

At the material time, the defendant was the managing director of Orderly Industrial, a garment trading company, which engaged a Mainland factory to manufacture its apparel. According to an agreement, the factory would usually share 70 per cent of the price paid by clients of Orderly Industrial.

The defendant was responsible for the operation of Orderly Industrial and was authorised to operate a bank account of the company for settling its payments and expenses.

One of the charges alleges that between December 1 and 13, 2018, the defendant, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, solicited a loan of RMB150,000 from the major partner of the aforesaid Mainland factory as an inducement to or reward for facilitating the payment of outstanding amounts due from Orderly Industrial to the factory, and maintaining the agreed percentage share between Orderly Industrial and the factory in relation to future purchase orders.

The other charge alleges that between August 1, 2018 and April 24, 2019, the defendant stole a total of HK$150,000 from Orderly Industrial.

Orderly Industrial has rendered full assistance to the ICAC during its investigation into the case.

The defendant has been released on ICAC bail, pending his court appearance tomorrow.
