A District Councillor, being a public servant, openly asked people to give her red packets? What laws might she have breached?
Under Section 4 of the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance (Cap. 201), any public servant who solicits or accepts any advantage as an inducement to or reward for performing duties shall be guilty of an offence. The offeror of the advantage shall also be guilty of an offence. Under Section 12, any person guilty of the above offence shall be liable to a fine of $500,000 and to imprisonment for 7 years.
