發展局長陳茂波捲入古洞囤地風波,有傳媒昨日再揭露陳茂波一直指稱曾持有相關地皮部分權益的海外註冊公司Orient Express,由「太太及家人」擁有,「家人」原來是陳茂波兒子陳天行,令其更涉誠信問題。陳茂波自周二出訪天津期間,反擊傳媒報道後,前晚回港至今一直沒有公開露面,未有再就昨日其子被指擁有相關地皮權益作回應,特區政府及特首亦一直保持沉默。 不過,由陳茂波妻子許步明家族持有,擁有地皮的國萬實業,昨晚突發表聲明,指許步明已於去年10月將Orient Express所持有的國萬實業全數股權,售予其弟許嘉麟,並指對19年前購入的農地,因陳茂波出任發展局長,以及政府推動新界東北發展,而引起公眾猜疑深感不安。國萬又指,為完全切除利益關係,已委託獨立測量師行為有關農地估值,完成後會按市值公開招標出售。 許步明其後亦發聲明,表示以市場水平相若的作價,實質出售所持有的國萬實業股份。她又指,自己一如不少香港事業女性,將部分積蓄投資土地樓房,但自陳茂波出任發展局長後,已不再投資香港物業,並主動出售手上物業,對社會及議會為她曾持有的農地鬧得沸沸揚揚,感到不安。她又指自丈夫擔任局長後,一家先後被跟蹤,對此感困擾及遺憾,請求傳媒尊重她和家人的私隱。有政治學者指陳茂波已成政府負資產,估計當局可能正考慮要求陳問責請辭或調職,但有消息指陳現階段無意辭職。 [封面新聞] 陳茂波隱形 妻子發聲明 http://www.am730.com.hk/page.php?p=78138 #陳茂波 #許步明 #國萬實業 #囤地 #新界東北
