The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) has commenced criminal proceedings in the Eastern Magistrates’ Court against Mr Ken Yiu Ka Lun, a former senior regulatory affairs manager of Hong Kong Television Network Limited (HKTV), for alleged insider dealing in the shares of HKTV (Note 1).

The SFC alleges that on 19 December 2013 and 20 December 2013, Yiu purchased a total of 101,000 shares of HKTV when he was involved in HKTV’s acquisition of a mobile television licence in his capacity as the company’s senior regulatory affairs manager. He disposed of all his HKTV shares shortly after HKTV’s announcement of the acquisition on 20 December 2013 (Note 2).

Yiu, who appeared in the Eastern Magistrates’ Court today, did not enter plea to the charges against him and the case was adjourned to 5 November 2019.
