ICAC 廉政公署

I am no fan of British colonialism. They took land that did not belong to them with violence.  They exploited Hong Kong for their benefit.  There were blatantly racist.

But the British colonial government established the ICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption) in 1974. Since then, the ICAC has done much in cleaning up the corruption in Hong Kong.  It has built up an enviable reputation for itself.

Hong Kong is now again part of China, and the Chinese is in charge of the government.  A Chinese head of ICAC is found, with apparently extensive and credible evidence, of doing what the ICAC was established to clean up.  How can people have faith in the ICAC anymore when we cannot trust in its head?  The damage is difficult to repair.

There is no escaping from the fact that the British established the ICAC, and the Chinese is destroying it.
