A Solemn Statement:

Director, Mei Fong Wong and Five Nominees together with a couple of members came to the GYT office on Monday 15 April 2024 morning. They request GYT to make available stamped envelopes with members’ addresses for them to post Nominees information to all members. The Board of Directors held a special meeting on Thursday 11 April 2024 to discuss their request and all Directors presented unanimously resolved to reject their request. To maintain the fairness and integrity of the coming election, GYT will not & must not assist individual nominees in their election campaign (including distribution of leaflets, election assistance & canvassing). GYT replied to them after the meeting that the resolution passed and advised that Nominees are free to conduct their election campaign and activities individually.

In the afternoon, without the permission of the Board of Directors they recorded a video announcement with no legal basis and contradicted the facts which are summarized as below: -

·       Reject their request to post Nominees information to all members is illegal

·       On Sunday 14 April 2024 (Ching Ming Worship) some Nominees forced members to sign proxies more than 100+ and then 50-100 members came to the GYT office at night to sign and accept those proxies

·       Mei Fong Wong claim that she did not have the opportunity to speak and participate in the above resolution passed

·       They wait until 4pm (the cutoff time for proxy registration) and request to inspect the last 100 proxies registered, otherwise they will report to the police

GYT realize that their above announcements are not true and incorrect with no supporting evidence. This is misleading to members and need to be clarified: -

·       To maintain the fairness and integrity of the coming election, GYT will not & must not assist individual nominees in their election campaign (including distribution of leaflets, election assistance & canvassing)

·       Some Nominees ask members for proxies on the Ching Ming Worship Day is legal. GYT will not assist or interfere with Nominees to conduct their election campaign in public area. They distributed leaflets on the day as well. The fact is GYT only received 10 signed & completed proxies during the Ching Ming Worship. There were less than 200 members participating on the day. How can anyone get 100+ signed proxies? No one will believe it

·       Mei Fong Wong did not attend any Board of Directors meetings since September 2023. How can she have the opportunity to speak and participate in resolution passed?

On Monday 15 April 2024, after 4pm (the deadline for proxy registration) they requested to allow Mei Fong Wong to inspect the Proxy Registration and the Proxy Forms. During the special meeting tthe Board of Directors emphasized that the Proxy Register and the Proxy Forms are confidential before the election. No one can inspect them without the permission of the Board. GYT staff rejected their request since they did not have any Board approval and requested them to leave as it is past the office closing time. Normal office hours are Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm. They refused to leave and ended up reporting to the police.
