曾蔭權坐富豪私人機遊泰 獲律政司放生

前特首曾蔭權與太太在2012年2月曾接受重慶富商張松橋豪華款待,乘坐私人飛機前往泰國旅遊勝地布吉遊玩,只支付5,900元。同月曾蔭權夫婦再接受款待,與劉鑾鴻及何柱國等富豪登上遊艇,由香港前往澳門暢遊,傳媒揭發事件後引起社會譁然,律政司最終以沒有足夠證據,未以《防止賄賂條例》或公職人員行為失當提控。

However, he added, it is not a formal rule and there could be an exception given Tsang's status as a former top official and the gravity of the charge.
