Hong Kong Ombudsman to investigate HKFP complaint against police refusal to disclose promo video cost

by admin

The Office of the Ombudsman in Hong Kong has decided to launch a full investigation into HKFP‘s complaint against police for refusing to disclose how much money was spent producing a promotional video.

HKFP wrote to the Ombudsman last month after police declined to answer questions about the cost of its video “Guarding Our City.” The complaint alleged that police breached the Code on Access to Information because the production of the video involved public funds.

“This Office has decided to conduct a full investigation into your complaint. In general, we would require three to six months to process your complaint,” a letter from the Ombudsman to HKFP read.
