Editorial:Profiteer Should Refund over Messi's Sit-out

【明報專訊】TATLER ASIA, the organiser of the Inter Miami exhibition match in Hong Kong, has become the target of public censure amid the controversy over soccer legend Lionel Messi's absence from the pitch. The role of the government has also attracted much attention. Chief Executive John Lee said yesterday (6 February) that the government will keep on urging the organiser to explain in detail what happened and actively respond to the demands of fans who bought tickets to the match. As for the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau and the Major Sports Events Committee, they should also review their supervisory roles, responsibilities and requirements when assisting in the organisation of mega events.
