Wow: Backstory Of Cathay Pacific CEO's Resignation | One Mile at a Time

quote [ Apparently this is also what led to Hogg’s resignation. According to media reports, China’s Civil Aviation Administration asked Hogg to hand over a list of Cathay Pacific employees who had participated in the protests.

According to these media sources, he did provide that report… but he put only put his own name on the list. ]

We all know what happens when good men do nothing.

Update: There are reputable sources suggesting that this may not have actually happened, unfortunately. Hopefully we learn more. Even if it didn’t go down exactly like this, I wouldn’t be surprised if this wasn’t too far off (that he wasn’t willing to comply with orders, and at that point left).

I bet it did. That's just the kind of civil disobedience you'd expect from a public school educated British CEO.

I read about the resignation in the Guardian earlier, where only the press release was quoted. I found the news very saddening, knowing that China will eventually track down and punish everyone who is involved in the protests, and everyone who helps them.
