‘News’ from the Hong Wrong Sub-Standard: Chief Executive CY Leung has announced that a new anti-corruption agency will be formed to oversee Hong Kong’s anti-corruption agency. The ICACICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption of the Independent Commission Against Corruption) will begin work as police probe the former-commissioner of the original ICAC for corrupt practices.
Timothy Tong is being investigated after LEGCO papers revealed that he had spent HK$154,000 on gifts to mainland officials, HK$757,921 on duty visits and – in one instance – ran a bill of HK$77,100 for two 5-star dinners at the Grand Hyatt.
The new agency was originally set to be called the Corruption Liaison & Investigative Team Observing the Review of Improper
Standards. Security chief, Lai Tung-Kwok, announced last week that it would be scrapped as, “Unfortunately, we realised the acronym worked out as ‘CLITORIS’.”
When challenged about who would oversee the new ICACICAC at today’s press conference, Leung denied that the new regulatory body for the regulatory body also required a regulatory body, stating, “…are you serious? I’m not going three levels deep for crying out loud.”
Bureaucrats agreed that a triple regulatory circle of oversight could potentially cause a rip in the space-time continuum.
The new body will be based within the existing offices of the original ICAC – each existing employee will be shadowed by a new ICACICAC officer to ensure against any inappropriate gift giving, exaggerated mileage claims, over-zealous coffee maker usage or petty post-it note theft.
