Birmingham have released a statement on their official website explaining the circumstances behind club president Carson Yeung helping the Hong Kong police with certain criminal investigations. The Blues acting chairman Peter Pannu has stressed that Carson Yeung is merely helping with police enquiries and, the matter has no connection with the club's parent company or subsidiaries.
"I have just had a call from the Birmingham International Holdings lawyers informing me of the position in Hong Kong and I have also been informed by them that Carson is assisting with enquiries that have nothing to do with the operation of BHL in Hong Kong and therefore nothing to do with the operation of the club, and relate to other matters.
"People are reminded that in recent years, members of the previous board were placed on bail for a significant amount of time and nothing came of it. I am only using this as an example to calm any fears.
"The law says a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Until I find out more information about this matter there is no further comment to be made."
