Court rules against Pac On appeal


The Court of Second Instance has denied an appeal by Belo Horizonte regarding the expiration of a concession on a land plot in Pac On. The case is linked to former Secretary Ao Man Long and businessman Ho Meng Fai and relates to lot PO5d, located next to the Pearl On the Lough residences, originally slated to be three storeys, or 11 metres tall, with a maximum usable space of 900 square metres. The court noted that Ho Meng Fai had ‘made illegal offerings to Ao Man Long’ in order to swap the land in question for a more valuable plot on which he could ‘construct hundreds of housing units’.
The court ruled against the appeal and maintained its initial declaration of expiration of the plot concession.
