On 27 November 2015, the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) published a news release stating that two directors of a trading company had appeared in a criminal court following charges of bribery by the ICAC.

The directors are alleged to have conspired to offer a monthly bribe of HK$10,000 (approximately US$1,300) to a vice president of a bank to procure the acceptance by the bank of a standby letter of credit for the company. Both directors were charged with conspiracy to offer an advantage to an agent in violation of the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance and the Crimes Ordinance. The hearing has been adjourned to 8 January 2016 for pre-trial review.
