No confirmation

I REFER to the article 'Regional chairman faces kuk challenge' (Sunday Morning Post, April 16) in which the writer quoted an Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) spokesman as confirming the commission had investigated Regional Council chairman Daniel Lam Wai-keung.

No ICAC spokesman has 'confirmed' the alleged investigation to the reporter. As I told the reporter on April 8, and as he correctly reported in his first article on the subject on April 9, the ICAC would not comment on the matter. It is our policy and practice not to confirm or deny the investigation of a named individual.
