The two brothers were arrested on bribery charges in March 2012.[5][6]

Thomas Kwok is a Christian. The Noah's Ark project on Ma Wan reflects Thomas Kwok's evangelical Christian faith. During the 1990s, he set up a church on the 75th-floor pyramid atrium atop Sun Hung Kai's Central Plaza office complex.[7]
