Market Misconduct Tribunal hands down decision on Asia TeleMedia Limited case

26 Nov 2015



The Market Misconduct Tribunal (MMT) today handed down its decision that three former executives of Asia TeleMedia Limited (ATML) (now known as Reorient Group Limited), Mr Yiu Hoi Ying, Ms Marian Wong Nam and Ms Cecilia Ho King Lin, had not engaged in insider dealing in the shares of ATML in 2007 (Notes 1 & 2).

The MMT also decided that it was not possible to decide whether ATML’s former chairman, Mr Lu Ruifeng, had engaged in insider dealing as, owing to evidence of acute illness, he was not given a reasonable opportunity of being heard.

The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) is studying the report (Note 3).

The MMT will later hear from the parties as to the costs of the proceedings.
