公開信:葛輝事件未解決,譚偉豪你打算匿到幾時? Open letter to Samson Tam: Vote yes on P&P investigation for Godfrey case!

葛輝事件未解決! (English version follows below)

 

葛輝踢爆「上網資助計劃」招標程序問題,事件令人懷疑政府評審投標時親疏有別,違反程序公正!更甚者,在葛輝公開投訴後,政府居然倚賴立法會建制派投票阻止其成立獨立調查委員會調查。

整件事件已經令香港IT界聲譽受損,業界的發展因政府親疏有別而引致的影響更是深遠,很多業界人士都希望立法會調查事件,而唯一方法是立法會以《立法會(權力及特權)條例》進行調查,從而查出真相,維繫香港賴以成功的公平公正制度。在七月十三日,立法會將會就此投票。

我們認為代表資訊科技界的譚偉豪議員,不但未有完整及詳盡地申報他及其相關人士在事件的參與,更躲在以「已參與事件」的擋箭牌後面,就引用權力及特權法的投票投下效用與反對票無異的棄權票!就是葛輝已經宣誓,隨時負上刑事責任,但譚偉豪竟然完全不表達立場?

我們不滿譚偉豪未有在事件中盡力維護IT界的聲譽,並強烈要求譚偉豪在週三立法會投票支持引用權力及特權法的議案,並向公眾清楚解釋其個人參與,及交待對葛輝事件的立場!

譚偉豪,你說要推動香港創新科技,但政府投標根本不公平,你為什麼一聲不響?你一而再,再而三,不表明立場,你到底你要匿到幾時?

The Jeremy Godfrey affair is not over!

As Mr Godfrey exposed the problems associated with the tender process of the ILSP (Internet Learning Support Program), the Government is suspected of exercising favouritism and interfering in the tender process, violating the principle for fair and due process.  Even worse, after Mr Godfrey blew the whistle, the Government used pro-establishment votes in the Legislative Council to stop the formation of an independent investigation committee to find out the truth. 

The whole matter has damaged the reputation of the IT sector, and we fear that the ill effects on the sector’s development will be far-reaching.  Many IT professionals believe that the Legislative  Council should get to the bottom of the matter, and the only way is to rely on the Legislative Council (Power and Privileges (P&P)) Ordinance to find out the truth, so as to maintain the core value that Hong Kong treasures so dearly, our fair and just system of society and our Government.  On July 13, the Legco will vote on this.

We believe that the Hon. Samson Tam, representing the IT sector,  has not  made a complete and detailed declaration of his involvement, and that of his close associates, in the ILSP matter.  He has been hiding behind the excuse of “being involved,” and ended up saying nothing to his constituents and the public.  If he continues to abstain in the related Legco voting, make no mistake about it, he is then in effect opposing the use of the  P&P Ordinance to investigate the Godfrey matter.  Even though Mr Godfrey has taken affidavit and the risk of criminal liability to speak, Mr Tam has chosen not to express his view on the matter.

We strongly urge Mr Tam to use his power to protect the reputation of the IT sector, and vote for Legco to use the P&P Ordinance to investigate the Godfrey case, and clearly state his personal and related involvement in the ILSP tender matter.  Most importantly, he has to state clearly his view of the whole matter, one thing that he has not done at all so far!

Samson Tam, you said you will promote innovation and technology in Hong Kong, but why are you silent when there is unfairness in the Government tender process?  Time and time again, you have not told us where you stand on key issues.  How much longer will you hide from the IT constituents?
