Statement by Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui

In response to the report of HK01 on the allegation of misconduct of one of its clergy, the HKSKH expresses its deep concern.  To safeguard all parties involved, the HKSKH had made a report to the Police for follow up.

The HKSKH confirmed that 11 years ago (i.e. November 2007) the then Diocesan General Secretary and the Archbishop were informed by a few church members verbally on their concern regarding the alleged misconduct of one of its clergy.  Upon enquiries and consulting the chancellor, the HKSKH clearly pointed out to those church members that the party involved may substantiate the allegation with evidence for follow up.

Subsequently it was informed by those church members that the party involved did not want to proceed further with the matter and the identity of the party involved in the matter had not been disclosed to the Church.  As such it was not possible for the Church to take any further action.

The HKSKH has always responded seriously to allegation of misconduct against its colleagues and would deal with the same in accordance with set procedure.  If it involves possible criminal activities, the matter would be reported to the Police.
