Hong Kong's former Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen was found guilty on Friday of a charge of misconduct while in office.

Tsang, who led Hong Kong from 2005 to 2012, had faced two charges of misconduct and one charge of bribery.

He was found guilty of a charge of misconduct for failing to declare a conflict of interest when he approved applications for radio broadcasting license by a broadcasting company Wave Media. The nine jurors entered a majority verdict with eight for guilty and one dissenting.

The jury could not reach a decision on whether Tsang was guilty of accepting as an advantage the renovation of a three-storey flat in Shenzhen that he had rented. The house is owned by Wave Media's main investor's company.

Tsang was granted bail and the trial will continue on Monday.

Tsang was cleared of another charge of misconduct, accusing him of failing to declare that he hired interior designer Ho Chow-lai to work on the flat when he recommended to the relevant government committee that Ho should receive an honor.
