GCPS (8193): ED David Yip Chung Wai arrested by ICAC | Client list
Company announcement, 21-Apr-2017
GCPS, via 80.1% subsidiary Greater China Appraisal Ltd, is a valuer. The other 19.9% is owned by Roma (8072), another valuation group. It is probably not a coincidence that on the same day, Roma has announced that its Chairman and CEO Kelvin Luk Kee Yan has also been arrested by the ICAC.
