Jimmy McGregor, whose term as chairman of the anti-graft body's review committee has been extended to the end of the year, hopes to be succeeded by a local Chinese. The appointment was due to expire at the end of last year but was extended another year. Mr McGregor, an Executive Councillor, yesterday said he hoped a local would replace him. 'The person should be a Hong Kong Chinese, not a gweilo. He should be of integrity, experienced and with a knowledge of Hong Kong,' he said. The operations review committee is an advisory committee to the Independent Commission Against Corruption. It receives reports from the operations department to ensure cases are dealt with fairly. The term of Professor Felice Lieh-mak, the chairman of the Advisory Committee on Corruption, another ICAC advisory committee, will also expire at the end of the year. Professor Lieh-mak said it was a tradition an Executive Councillor be appointed as the chairman but it was not a given. Chief Executive-designate Tung Chee-Hwa chose neither chairman to join his post-handover Exco.
