Mr Ricky CHU Man-kin helms EOC as new Chairperson

Mr Ricky CHU Man-kin assumed office at the EOC as its new Chairperson today (11 April 2019). Having served in the Independent Commission Against Corruption for 35 years and headed the Secretariat of the Independent Police Complaints Council for over five years, Mr Chu is a seasoned expert in complaint investigation, a dedicated leader in public service, and a proven fighter against social injustice.

Speaking on his aspirations for his term at the EOC, Mr Chu said, “My work in the past has always been driven by a belief in righting social wrongs through concrete action, and as the new Chairperson of the EOC, I pledge to devote my best effort to ensuring the Commission fulfil the important mission it shoulders – promoting diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities. We are, after all, the only statutory body in Hong Kong responsible for eliminating discrimination – an indispensable role in any civilised society. By forging closer ties with stakeholders and giving stronger voice to marginalised groups in Hong Kong, I look forward to leading the EOC to build on its achievements and break new ground.”
