Democratic Party demands ICAC head to withdraw from probe
(03-20 16:15)

The Democratic Party has called on ICAC Commissioner, Simon Peh Yun-lu, to withdraw from heading an investigation into his predecessor, Timothy Tong Hin-ming.
The ICAC is currently looking into alleged misconduct in public office and violations of anti-bribery laws by Tong between 2007 and 2012 -- when he led the organization.
The party's chief executive and a former ICAC investigator, Lam Cheuk-ting, said Peh's public comments on the case may have jeopardized the on-going probe.
Lam said the ICAC's deputy commissioner, Ryan Wong Sai-chiu, should take over the investigation.
