Commissioner gives interim report on the investigation of Octopus
1. In order to address public concern on the progress
of investigation conducted by this Office, the Privacy Commissioner for
Personal Data, Mr. Roderick B Woo (“the Commissioner”) issued today an
interim report on his preliminary findings and recommendations.
2. “I am aware of the fact that this Office has never
before issued an interim report of any investigation but I am conscious
of the serious public concern that Octopus should take prompt actions
to address the issues which were raised at the public hearing four days
ago. For that reason, I have prepared preliminary findings with
interim recommendations to Octopus group of companies. I hope the
interim report can facilitate remedial measures to be considered
promptly by Octopus” said Mr. Woo.
3. As the investigation is still in progress, the
giving of this interim report shall not affect or prejudice the
ultimate determination by the Commissioner. Such determination
will be made after conclusion of the investigation.
