Annotation: This report explains the activities of Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption for 1992.
Abstract: In the first nine months of 1992, the Commission faced a 45-percent increase in reports of corruption compared with the same period last year. This increase is attributed to the ballooning trade with China, a more transparent border, and the decision of many Hong Kong inhabitants to earn the money and leave the city before 1997. The increase is reflected in the various investigation branches of the Commission. Branch 1, which investigates government corruption, experienced a 37-percent increase in police corruption and a 34-percent increase for other government departments. Branch 2, which investigates corruption in the private sector experienced a 51-percent increase. Branch 3, which investigates corruption in the public sector, experienced an 84-percent increase. The overall load of 1,382 cases was the highest ever recorded. In the same period, 301 persons were prosecuted of whom 164 persons were convicted. Common methods of reporting corruption included phone calls, letters, government referrals, and personal reports. The report includes a summary of the 1992 Regional Seminar on Corruption-Related Crime, statistical graphs, and numerous photographs.
