Although an official announcement on former education secretary Arthur Li's appointment as chairman of the University of Hong Kong's governing body was not made until after midnight on Thursday, the appointment notice was discovered by an internet user several hours earlier.

On the government website, the notice was found dated January 1 2015 – a full year before Li is supposed to take over as chairman.

The president of the Hong Kong Information Technology Federation, Francis Fong, believes human error may have caused the document to be dated earlier.

The notice was later taken offline.
