[07:00] The Hong Kong government launched unemployment assistance earlier, and eventually about 350,000 applicants were approved for 10,000 yuan.

However, its "approval before review" mechanism has aroused controversy.

"Hong Kong 01" received help from a number of Jockey Club betting shop employees who had been out of work for more than a month. They indicated that they were recently notified by the government that they were not eligible and requested to return the full amount of the subsidy. "Before "full term", he was immediately asked to "return to the water".


The government replied that in order to disburse the subsidy as soon as possible, it will not verify the authenticity of the self-declaration information during the approval process, but will conduct an ex post review after the subsidy is disbursed. Recently, it was found that about 520 applicants were ineligible, including about 350 Jockey Club betting shop staff. , has issued payment slips one after another, requesting the refund of the subsidy, which means that the government treasury is expected to recover about 5.2 million yuan.

Some Jockey Club employees questioned the mechanism was sloppy and "sloppy", "It's obvious that you are the first to approve after the review, and then you turn around and then take it back, which is really disturbing to the people."
