Gifts For Mainland Officials Anger Hong Kong - China Real Time Report - WSJ
"Last week, in papers submitted to city legislators, the agency revealed that Timothy Tong, recently retired Independent Commission Against Corruption head, spent thousands of dollars on gifts for mainland Chinese officials during his five years in office. Some of the gifts ranged from the mundane—including numerous crystal models of the Independent Commission Against Corruption's headquarters—to the bizarre, including Independent Commission Against Corruption-branded pens that cost as much as $215 each and some described in notes simply as Independent Commission Against Corruption “cauldrons,” which cost $32 apiece.

In addition, the agency said, Mr. Tong gave $6,200 worth of cookies, chocolates and mooncakes to government officials during his five-year tenure. Altogether, Mr. Tong spent at least $28,350 on gifts to government officials during his time as Independent Commission Against Corruption head, with the majority of those going to mainland officials, the agency said." ...

The Difficulty of Figuring Out Who Owns What in China - Yueran Zhang - The Atlantic
"The snafu over real-estate searches has exposed the continuing gap between Chinese society and the state. In some ways, China is falling into the "Tacitus Trap": when a government loses credibility, it will be perceived as dissimulating whether or not it is telling the truth. Nefarious motives will be read into its every move. These conditions in turn act as a deterrent for any progressive interaction between state and society, and create a dilemma that may cast a shadow over China's public sphere for some time to come." ...
