History of Investigations

In November 2013, the CCAC releases an investigation and analysis report on complaints regarding the Granting of Public Service of Road Mass Transport.[2] The original complaint was received on May 30th 2013 and due to the filing of bankruptcy of Reolian on October 3rd 2013, the CCAC released their findings. As one of the results of the report, lawmakers in Macau suggested Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Lau Si Io, to resign.[3]
