Chief Superintendent Wong Chi-kwong of the Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB) chaired the biannual Police/Securities and Futures Commission Liaison Meeting on May 2. Executive Director (Enforcement) of the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) Mr Thomas Atkinson led representatives to attend the meeting.
Both sides discussed cases of mutual concern and the progress of co-operation on policy, operational and training matters. With a growing concern for issues about Initial Coin Offering and the Collective Investment Scheme, Senior Superintendent Law Yuet-wing of the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau (CSTCB) was invited to become a standing member of the meeting to share his professional knowledge on the issues.
The Force has a long history of co-operation with the SFC. The two parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in 2017 to formally establish a co-operative relationship. The MoU covers a range of matters, including referral of cases, joint investigations, exchange and use of information, mutual provision of investigative assistance, and a liaison meeting to be held biannually. In addition, the CCB has been designated a contact point for liaison with the SFC. The MoU has been uploaded onto CCB's webpage for reference.
Should investigation officers require SFC's assistance, they may contact CCB's designated Liaison Officers with the SFC: Chief Inspector of Fraud Section (1) Luk Chun-chung (email: cip-fs-1-a-div-ccb / phone: 2860- 4846) or Senior Inspector of Fraud Section (1) Team A Chu Kin-wah (email: ip-sip-fs-1a-a-div-ccb / phone: 2860-4844).
