The Hong Kong anti-corruption watchdog says it has charged Tsang with two counts of public misconduct in public office.

The allegations came shortly before Tsang left office in 2012 and arose primarily over a discounted luxury apartment lease.

Criminal defense attorneys in Bangkok Chaninat and Leeds have decades of experience successfully defending their clients, both Thai nationals and foreigners.

Tsang said: “Over the past three and a half years, I have assisted fully with the investigations by the Independent Commission Against Corruption. My conscience is clear. I have every confidence that the court will exonerate me after its proceedings.”

Public confidence in Hong Kong has been shaken by a string of recent cases that have raised concerns about convenient connections between affluent individuals and the city’s leaders.

In Thailand, those found guilty of committing corruption on a large scale could face the death penalty.
