Date: 10 August 2018

Ir Philco Wong, President, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers
c/o Mrs Monica Yuen, Chief Executive and Secretary

Dear Ir Wong,

Subject: Upholding the Reputation of the Engineering Profession

We are deeply concerned about the recent incident concerning the MTR Shatin-Central Link Project (SCL). As the events unfold, the public perception on the reputation of the engineering profession is now in jeopardy.

Specifically we regret to learn that in your position with the MTR, you are embroiled in this incident at two levels:
The Government has openly claimed that they had lost confidence in the SCL engineering team led by your goodself;
The Government has referred the SCL incident to the police for criminal investigation and the engineering reports issued by your team are allegedly subjects of investigation.

Whilst we fully respect your right to defend your integrity and professional conduct in the due process and legal proceedings, given the current circumstances it would be extremely difficult for you to continue to lead the institution and carry out normal duties without causing adverse public perception.

As stated in Section 12(2) of the HKIE Constitution: “Every member shall at all times so order his conduct as to uphold the dignity and reputation of his profession and to safeguard the public interest in matters of safety and health and otherwise.”

As a senior HKIE member, we trust you would put the reputation of the Institution above personal interests. In light of the current circumstances, we believe it is prudent for you to resign from the presidency of the Institution.

We await your reply soon.
