Li Canfeng appointed head of DSSOPT

Former Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau (DSSOPT) deputy director Li Canfeng has been appointed director of the bureau after resigning six years ago, TDM News reported.
The new Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Raimundo do Rosario, who was just sworn-
in on Saturday, revealed that the personnel is chosen by the Macau government. Mr Canfeng served as deputy director of DSSOPT between 1998 and 2008. During former Secretary for Transport and Public Works Ao Man Long’s trial in 2007, Mr Canfeng said that he could not remember details related to the case. He resigned one year later.
Ao Man Long was sentenced by the Court of Final Appeal to 28 and a half years in prison for corruption, money laundering and unexplained wealth.
DSSOPT was formerly headed by Jaime Carion who retired last October after working for 36 years as a civil servant.
The Secretary for Transport and Public Works Raimundo do Rosario told reporters that he is unsure of Li Canfeng’s role in the trial or the case, as he was not in Macau over the past 15 years. “I really don’t know about this. I don’t whether he was involved or not. I was not here for 15 years,” he reiterated.
Since Macau’s handover, Raimundo do Rosario served as the director of the Economic and Commercial Delegation of Macau in Lisbon, and the Macau’s Permanent Representation to the European Union in Brussels.
According to the government’s Official Gazette, former Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, Cheong U, was appointed to the Macau Foundation’s vice-presidency. Vasco Fong, who previously headed the Commission Against Corruption, has been appointed coordinator of the Office for Personal Data Protection (GPDP), replacing Sonia Chan, now sworn-in as Secretary for Administration and Justice.
