A frail-looking Hui and grey-haired Kwok were grim-faced during the hearing, which lasted less than a minute.Hui was jailed for seven-and-a-half years in December 2014, while 64-year-old Kwok -- who was joint chairman of Hong Kong's biggest property company, Sun Hung Kai -- was sentenced to five years.During the appeal case, lawyer Edwin Choy challenged the legitimacy of an interview between the city's graft-busters and Hui three years before he was arrested.Clare Montgomery, representing Kwok, said the court failed to identify any specific advantage that Kwok had received after paying Hui.Hui was Tsang's chief secretary from 2005 to 2007 .
