ISBN-0-19-583896-3 - The flight of Peter Godber from Hong Kong in June 1973 just as he was about to be arrested on charges of bribery and conspiracy marked a turning point in the history of corruption in the Colony. Up until then corruption had been endemic in Hong Kong, despite several attempts post-war to grapple with the problem. Godber's flight highlighted the situation with dramatic force and was to be one of the main factors in the setting up, in 1974, of the Independent Commission Against Corruption [OICAC] a body responsible to the Governor himself. Armed with Draconian powers, the Commission soon scored notable successes which resulted in a number of spectacular trials and the flight of some alarmed Chinese police officers overseas. Hard Graft in Hong Kong examines the history and nature of corruption in the Colony - the causes celebres of the past and their bizarre cast of characters, the Star Ferry Riots of 1966 and the disturbances of 1967, syndicated police corruption and the establishment of the ICAC, and the so-called 'police mutiny' of 1977.
