Legislator, Mandy Tam, has called on the Chief Executive to respond to the controversy surrounding his cousin, Daniel Heung, who was accused of converting a warehouse on government land in Shatin into a private residence without the administration's approval. Mr Heung, who is the former Chairman of the Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education, stepped down from the post after the controversy erupted. Speaking on RTHK's Letter to Hong Kong, Ms Tam also said it was outrageous to hear Mr Heung having described the issue as a "personal matter". She said given his professional background as an architect and a former member of the Town Planning Board, his act of converting the warehouse into private residence could hardly be accepted as a case of oversight or negligence.
