Hong Kong: Trial of former JPMorgan banker begins in Hong Kong with plea of not guilty

JPMorgan did not carry out key checks when employing the son of a potential client, a prosecutor told a Hong Kong court on Monday, the first day of a bribery trial of the bank’s former Asia investment banking vice-chairwoman, Catherine Leung.

Leung, who repeated a not guilty plea on Monday, is charged with bribing the then chairman of Kerry Logistics Network Ltd,¬†Ang Keng-lam, by employing his son at the U.S. investment bank’s Hong Kong office in 2010.

She did so, the prosecution said, in anticipation that Ang would influence his company to give JPMorgan a role on its upcoming initial public offering (IPO).
