Conviction quashed as lower courts applied wrong test


Re: HKSAR v Pang Hung Fai HKFACC No. 8 of 2013

The appellant had been convicted of dealing with property known or believed to represent proceeds of an indictable office, contrary to the Organized and Serious Crimes Ordinances, ss 25(1) and (3). The present proceedings were an appeal against that conviction. Held: allowing the appeal and quashing the conviction, the Court noted that the lower courts had applied the wrong test.

Ken MacDonald QC was involved in this case.
