The Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Raimundo do Rosário, has ordered the commencement of disciplinary procedures to assess the internal workings of the Macau Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau (SMG) as well as the conduct of its former director, Fong Soi Kun.

The announcement follows the investigation report issued by the Commission Against Corruption last week, which blamed Fong for faulty typhoon forecasting procedures. The report stated that SMG relied on the personal judgments and decisions of its former director when making typhoon forecasts and issuing warning signals for the tropical cyclones.

Fong resigned after residents and lawmakers criticized the bureau’s failure to raise timely warning signals on August 23, when Typhoon Hato struck.
