PEH, Yun-lu Simon
Commissioner, Independent Commission Against Corruption Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, China
Mr PEH is the Commissioner of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region since 2012 as appointed by the Central People’s Government, People’s Republic of China. The ICAC under his leadership keeps up the highest level of professionalism in fighting corruption without fear and favour and successfully brought to jail some corrupt former senior government officials and top management of public listed companies. The ICAC also strengthens corruption prevention education and advice for the private sector while ensuring that corruption-resistant systems and a clean culture are in place in the public sector and the probity culture is deeply rooted in Hong Kong society. As an advocate for international collaboration, Mr PEH steers the ICAC to enhance training and consultancy services provided to the anti-corruption agencies in other countries, particularly those along the Belt and Road routes. These efforts have earned ICAC staunch support from the local community and clear recognition from the international community, which are reflected from the local and international surveys relating to corruption. Before taking up the helm of the ICAC, Mr PEH was the Director of Immigration. He graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1978, studied public policy and administration at the Graduate School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley in 1991-92 and attended the Royal College of Defence in London in 2001 and was awarded a Master Degree in International Relations by the King’s College London. Mr PEH was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star Medal and the Immigration Distinguished Services Medal by the Chief Executive of the HKSAR in 2011 and 2006 respectively.
