A far more important issue, though, is that the rules of the Charter you constructed require, among other philosophically interesting conditions, that the Committee members deliberate this topic in secret.

Yet, that is contrary to the well and universally accepted principles of responsible and ethical corporate governance.

Sounds like the HK rep was being invited to a mob hit.
