Birmingham City FC President faces police investigation

Wed 29th Jun 2011 | Legal

Birmingham City have released a statement today confirming that club President Carson Yeung is assisting police in Hong Kong.

They have however denied that it is linked to the operation of the club’s parent company or any of its subsidiaries.

 

The statement reads:

Birmingham City’s Acting Chairman Peter Pannu wishes to put out a statement informing the public that President Carson Yeung is assisting the Police in Hong Kong in relation to certain criminal investigations which at this stage he believes do not have any connection to the operation of the parent company or any of its subsidiaries.

Pannu said: “I have just had a call from the Birmingham International Holdings lawyers informing me of the position in Hong Kong and I have also been informed by them that Carson is assisting with enquiries that have nothing to do with the operation of BIHL in Hong Kong and therefore nothing to do with the operation of the club, and relate to other matters.

“People are reminded that in recent year’s members of the previous Board were placed on bail for a significant amount of time and nothing came of it. I am only using this as an example to calm any fears.

“The law says a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

“Until I find out more information about this matter there is no further comment to be made.”
