Company owned by Hong Kong justice chief’s husband sued for price fixing

Competition Commission begins legal action against ATAL Building Services Engineering, set up by Teresa Cheng’s husband Otto Poon, and Shun Hing Engineering Contracting Company.

Hong Kong’s competition watchdog has sued a company set up by the husband of justice secretary Teresa Cheng Yeuk-wah for price fixing, market-sharing and bid-rigging in relation to air-conditioning works potentially worth about HK$2 billion (US$254.7 million).

The air-conditioning works cartel case involved ATAL Building Services Engineering of Analogue Holdings, set up by Otto Poon Lok-to, Cheng’s husband, and Shun Hing Engineering Contracting Company under Shun Hing Holdings.

Both are leading electrical and mechanical engineering service providers in Hong Kong.
