Rise in Hong Kong corruption complaints to ICAC attributed to more allegations about private sector as city economy recovers

By Jess Ma

Corruption complaints in Hong Kong went up last year but remained below the number recorded before the coronavirus hit, with advisers to the city’s anti-graft agency attributing the increase to a jump in private sector corruption as the economy recovered.

Bernard Chan, the chairman of the Independent Commission Against Corruption’s operations review committee, revealed on Monday that the agency received 2,001 allegations of corruption last year, a 9 per cent increase on 2022.
