Dinner saga should conclude: CE

(To watch the full media session with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The three senior officials who breached the group gathering regulation after attending a dinner at a scheduled premise have discharged their responsibility by paying the relevant fines.   Chief Executive Carrie Lam made the statement before attending the Executive Council meeting this morning.   Mrs Lam said the officers concerned were issued fixed penalty tickets under Hong Kong Laws Cap 599G because they breached gathering rules.   However, they have paid the fines and hence have no more legal responsibility under the public health regulation, she said.   Mrs Lam also dismissed suggestions the officials concerned blatantly breached government regulations, saying there is no definition of what constitutes a lavish dinner.   The Chief Secretary and the Secretary for Security, who are the supervisors of these officials at various levels, held the same view, she noted.
