HKSAR v. Lui Kin Hong

This was a final appeal by Mr Lui against his conviction and sentence.

Mr Lui was convicted of conspiracy to accept advantages contrary to common law and the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance. A jury had found that, while an agent of Brown and Williamson Tobacco Corporation and British American Tobacco Company (HK) Limited, Mr Lui had accepted bribes in the order of $23 million for ensuring the supply of cigarettes to certain companies. He was subsequently sentenced to 3 years and 8 months imprisonment, and ordered to pay $500,000 in fines, $10 million in restitution and prosecution costs of $11 million.

In this decision, the Court of Appeal dismissed Mr Lui's appeals against both conviction and sentence, and increased the sum that Mr Lui was required to pay by way of restitution.
