Ao Man Long’s UK funds seized by MSAR

722

The government coffers have received over MOP345.8 million confiscated from former Secretary of Transport and Public Works Ao Man Long, recovered by authorities in the United Kingdom, according to Portuguese-language broadcaster TDM. The former official was previously sentenced to 29 and a half years in prison for acts of corruption. The funds were handed over by the government of the United Kingdom due to a previously signed accord between the MSAR and the territory. A report published by the third standing committee of the Legislative Assembly took note of the funds returned, originating from the sale of a property of the former official as well as accounts held by the disgraced former Secretary in the United Kingdom.
