Philip Wong Yu-hong, GBS (Chinese: 黃宜弘; born 23 December 1938, Quanzhoumarker, Fujianmarker, Chinamarker). He is a legislator in Hong Kongmarker as a member of the legislative councilmarker (Functional constituencies, Commercial (Second)) and a representative of the National People's Congress.

Criticism

Questionable academic credentials

On the Legislative council website, Wong is listed to have a master's degree in engineering from the University of California, Juris Doctor from Southland University and Ph.D from the California Coast University.

Share market analyst David Webb requested an investigation be launched to check for his possible fake academic credentials. California Coast University's bulletin claimed that it "does not require formal, on-campus residence or classroom attendance". Wong did receive the engineering degree on August 27, 1984. Southland University however is now defunct, and is a typical diploma mill offeringdegrees with substandard or no academic studies.

Middle finger incident

During the July 2003 Article 23 march, Wong was filmed to be giving the democracy demonstrators the middle finger gesture.

Albert Cheng had once asked in an October 2004 meeting whether his middle finger gesture has been referred to a committee for consideration. Jasper Tsang, a colleague of Wong, replied that Wong had already apologized the previous day.
