Around 66.07% voted in favour of his removal.

Peter Lau Kwok Kuen, the former chief executive and director of Giordano International Limited, was ousted from his positions following a special general meeting convened by the company's shareholders held on April 3.

The shareholders, through a poll, voted to remove Kuen, with approximately 66.07% in favour and 33.93% against.

“Dr Lau Kwok Kuen, Peter was removed from his position as a Director, as a result of which he also automatically ceased to be the Chairman of the Board, the Chairman of each of the Nomination Committee and the Management Committee as well as a member of the Remuneration Committee of the Company,” Giordano said in a filing.

The abrupt removal also disqualified Lau as the authorised representative of the company.
