Executive Councillor Nellie Fong Wong Kut-man yesterday denied a newspaper report that she had been investigated by the British Hong Kong Government. The report said Mrs Fong had admitted she had once been investigated. It said the ICAC had asked banks to reveal Mrs Fong's financial situation. The investigation was said to have been undertaken just before she organised seven chambers of commerce to complain about former Governor Chris Patten to the British Government. But Mrs Fong yesterday issued a statement saying the report was untrue and she was not aware of any ICAC investigation. 'I have not been aware that such an investigation had taken place. Neither had there been any contact between the ICAC and me on any occasion pertaining to any of my business dealings within and outside the company,' she said. Mrs Fong, who is deputy managing partner at accountants Arthur Andersen, maintained that the monitoring at her own company had been enough. There was no need for any government investigations. 'I told the reporter of the newspaper that being a member of senior management of a multinational company, I had to be most proper in everything I did . . . there was no need for any government investigations,' she said.
