Former Hong Kong leader Tung Chee-hwa has surgery for undisclosed condition

Hong Kong’s first chief executive, Tung Chee-hwa, was in hospital on Monday for a check-up related to a previously undisclosed operation, his spokesman said.

“Mr Tung Chee-hwa underwent an operation at Queen Mary Hospital last month and it went well, with him recuperating,” the spokesman said in a statement that offered no further details about the procedure or medical condition leading to it.

The Post understands that Tung was discharged from hospital at some point following the operation and that Monday’s return visit was for a check-up.

“Since regular check-ups are needed following the operation, Mr Tung is now in hospital for further check-ups,” the spokesman said in the morning statement.
