Political groups filed complaints at the ICAC on Tuesday following Chief Executive CY Leung’s admission that he sought to influence a probe into the HK$50 million he received from Australian firm, UGL.
The groups alleged that Leung and the DAB’s Holden Chow engaged in misconduct in public office by conspiring to secretly shape the direction of the select committee’s investigation.
Lawmaker Claudia Mo from Hong Kong First said it was unacceptable for Chow to allow CY Leung to interfere with the investigation.
She added that it was ridiculous for the Chief Executive to call for a probe into who was responsible for leaking details about his intervention.
Democratic Party legislator Ted Hui, meanwhile, said Leung should have sent an open letter to the select committee if he was so convinced that he has the right to express his views on the investigation.
