【又有得聽】港大校委錄音再流出 紀文鳳:陳文敏利用外部勢力 恐嚇、脅逼、捏造

2015/10/30 — 9:35

商台節目《在晴朗的一天出發》再披露一段香港大學校務委員會在上月29日的會議上,討論法律學院前院長陳文敏出任副校長的錄音紀錄。該段錄音為「梁粉」校委紀文鳳在會上的發言。紀文鳳在會議上批評,陳文敏利用外部及內部勢力,直接式或間接去游說、脅逼、恐嚇、捏造甚至威嚇校委會成員去通過他的任命。

她又指自己從未遇過一個候選人,會在招聘期間公開地、不顧一切地討論他或她有機會取得的職位,事實上這個做法已經違反了保密原則。她稱自己非常支持新聞自由,而且非常同情陳文敏需要就媒體對他的批評作出反擊,「但明顯地,他過了火」。

紀文鳳更稱,自己是其中一個受害人,因為今年2月12日,一份本地報章指控她在校委會中拖延他的任命,以致她需要發表一份公開聲明,去澄清校委會甚至還未開始討論這次任命。她表示基於對陳文敏的誠信非常有保留,故此不接受這個推薦。

另外,政府刊憲,公布行政長官續委任紀文鳳為港大校務委員,同時委任3名新校委,包括港大畢業生議會副主席潘燊昌、會計師公會前會長周光暉和信和集團執行董事黃永光。

Chairman, I have been a corporate CEO and employer for over 30 years, and I have interviewed and hired hundreds of people in the past. But never in my life have I encountered a candidate who will overtly and recklessly discuss his or her potential employment at any stage of the recruitment process. This in fact is already in breach of confidentiality.

It is most unfortunate that the candidate recommended by the University Search Committee has never been tabled at this Council for deliberation, in our view we are actually doing it according to procedures.

I am in support of press freedom and also in sympathy with the candidate who defended himself against the criticism of some media, but apparently he has gone too far, to create controversy and use external and internal forces, directly or indirectly to lobby, pre-claim, coerce, intimidate, fabricate and sometimes even threaten Council members to approve his appointment. I myself was a victim on Febrary12 this year, when I was accused by a local newspaper for stalling his appointment at this Council. I then had to issue a public statement to clarify that the Council has not even started to discuss this appointment. This is just one incident among many, and to me, all these tactics in fact are interferences with the University affairs at highest level.

As members of the Council, and also trustee of the University, we are professionals with our independent judgment and ethics, we do our assessment based on the (…… )community at large. Given that position of the pro-vice-chancellor is responsible for academic recruitment and resources, the pro-vice-chancellor should be a role model for all, staff and students included. So I have strong reservation about the recommended candidate’s integrity and I would not accept the recommendation. Thank you.
