Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, at a media session after attending a special meeting of the LegCo Finance Committee today (April 12):
Reporter: Regarding the incident of Baptist (Sha Tin Wai) Lui Ming Choi Primary School, what sort of investigations has the Education Bureau conducted and what are the results? And how is the Education Bureau following up on this incident?
Secretary for Education: As I said, actually before the incident was reported in the media, we had already started the investigations into mainly those (issues) relating to the usage of government funding, whether they complied with government guidelines in, for example, the tendering procedures, as well as the promotion of staff.
We did find out that there were some irregularities, and so we have already issued a letter to the IMC (Incorporated Management Committee) and advised them that they had breached some of the guidelines and they had to have some remedial actions. And they actually have replied to us that they would take some remedial actions. At this stage, we will be following up and make sure that what they have promised us to do will be implemented and followed up closely.
