Hong Kong leader defends US bank head quarantine exemption

Mon, November 15, 2021, 11:23 PM


Hong Kong's leader on Tuesday defended allowing the head of JP Morgan Chase to skip a three-week Covid quarantine imposed on most other visitors, saying he worked for "a very big bank".

The comments came as Hong Kong also announced more than 100 cargo pilots had been ordered into mandatory quarantine and that the city was at risk of running out of air crew.

JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon landed on Monday for a 32-hour whirlwind tour without undergoing the usual 21-day hotel quarantine even as the international business hub tightens restrictions to adhere to China's "zero-Covid" strategy.

Earlier this year HSBC's boss was forced to undergo a full quarantine during a trip to the city.

4. It's funny how our oligarchy look just like kings

They are not held accountable, no laws really apply to them. Even murder seems a ok if you do it in the name of your chosen oligarch.

They trampled and abuse others if they feel like it. They spread disease if it is too inconvenient for them not to

Just more American oligarchs on parade. Maybe we can shoot him off into space too.
