Funeral agent charged by ICAC for bribery over services

A funeral agent was yesterday (March 25) charged by the ICAC for allegedly offering a bribe of $3,000 to a fellow church member of a deceased elderly person for securing the business of the latter’s after-death arrangements.

Chak Kwok-hung, 42, sales agent of Endless Love Care Service Company Limited (Endless Love), faces one count of offering an advantage to an agent, contrary to section 9(2)(a) of the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance.

The defendant was released on ICAC bail, pending his appearance at the Kowloon City Magistrates’ Courts on Thursday (March 28) for plea.

On March 6, 2023, an elderly person residing in a private residential care home passed away. The elderly person had given several ten thousand dollars to two fellow church members and entrusted them to take care of his funeral services beforehand. After the duo found out that the funeral services had been passed to Endless Love unbeknown to them on the same day the deceased died, one of them visited Endless Love to make enquiries.

The charge alleges that on March 6, 2023, the defendant offered $3,000 to the fellow church member visiting Endless Love for referring the funeral services for the deceased elderly person to the defendant or Endless Love.

The church member rejected the defendant’s offer and left.
