News: Independent Commission against Corruption

Hong Kong's Independent Commission against Corruption has arrested 20 people in connection with a piling corruption scandal on a government housing department development in Tin Shui Wai. Among them are five resident site staff and staff from the piling contractor B+B Construction - including two directors. B+B is accused of miscalculating the design after examination found piles at least 1m shorter than they should have been, causing one of the housing blocks to tilt after the superstructure was constructed. B+B is also accused of entertaining resident site staff with lavish meals and visits to a nightclub in return for lax supervision.
