The ICAC said last night the leak could have come from Department of Justice officials or lawyers involved in the case.


It had held an inquiry and said no anti-graft agents had disclosed details of the interview.


An Independent Commission Against Corruption spokesman said: 'All ICAC officers are under strict orders not to disclose statements made by suspects to unauthorised parties.


'On publication of part of Madam Aw's statement in the South China Morning Post, the ICAC immediately carried out an inquiry covering all officers who have had access to the statements.


'There is no evidence to suggest that any ICAC officer was responsible for the leak,' the spokesman said.
