TVB General Manager Arrested for Corruption Probe

http://english.cri.cn/6666/2010/03/11/1221s555816.htm



Three senior employees of Hong Kong's Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), including general manager Stephen Chan Chi-wan, were arrested by the local anti-corruption body, according to various reports.

They were allegedly involved in "corrupt practice" relating to a recent major TV show, the China News Services quotes a local source as saying.

A TVB spokesman said the three employees have been relieved from their duties temporarily and TVB will "fully cooperate" with the investigation.

Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) declined to reveal details about the case.

What major TV show is it? We need more details. The fat cats of the TVB are dogs.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

TVB GM Stephen Chan arrested for alleged corruption

HONG KONG : TVB general manager and host of popular talk show "Be My Guest", Stephen Chan, has been arrested along with four others by Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) on Thursday for alleged corruption, said Hong Kong media.

Chan, who turns 50 this year, was taken into custody along with TVB's head of business development Wilson Chan Wing-suen; variety department executive producer Wilson Chin Kwok-wai; actor Ning Jin; and the director of an advertising firm.

Chan was rumoured to have abused his position in TVB to enrich a shell company that he owned. The shell company allegedly made about HK$10 million (S$1.8 million) over the years.

TVB's external affairs division assistant controller Tsang Sing Ming announced on the same day that the company has suspended Chan and the other three arrested TVB employees from their duties, adding that the television station will fully cooperate with ICAC investigations.

Production of Chan's popular talk show "Be My Guest", which counts Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang and disgraced star Edison Chen among its previous guests, has also been suspended. However, a pre-recorded episode will apparently be broadcast as scheduled.

Tsang claimed that he cannot give any details as the anti-graft body's investigation was still under way but said that the matter would not affect TVB's daily operations.

Veteran TVB artiste Eric Tsang told Hong Kong media that he did not know the details of the matter but believed Chan was probably not involved in corrupt practices.
