Former Chief Executive Carrie Lam and many top officials in her administration were on Friday appointed Justices of the Peace (JP) by the new government.

Former ministers Sophia Chan, Frank Chan, Patrick Nip, Alfred Sit, Wong Kam-sing and Edward Yau were on the list, together with the ex-heads of the Audit Commission, the ICAC, and the Customs and Excise Department – John Chu, Simon Peh and Hermes Tang.

Several senior members of the current government were also given the honour, including the Deputy Chief Secretary for Administration Warner Cheuk, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Algernon Yau and Secretary for Innovation and Technology Sun Dong.

The appointments are effective from Friday, with the exception of Tang, who will become a JP on October 8.
