On 12 December 2018, the Department of Justice also issued a statement claiming there was “insufficient evidence to support a reasonable prospect of conviction” against former Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying for any criminal offence over Leung’s receipt of HK$50 million from Australian engineering firm UGL. Many critics, including former Director of Public Prosecutions Grenville Cross, said he found it “very surprising” that no independent legal advice was sought on Leung’s case and urged the Secretary for Justice to explain. “For many years, this has been the invariable practice whenever a senior government official has been suspected of a criminal offence,” Cross said. The Democratic Party also considered asking for a judicial review of the Department of Justice’s decision.

In December 2018, the Buildings Department announced three units with problematic structures of the Cheng’s properties “had been corrected” and Cheng would not be prosecuted over illegal structures but they would only charge Cheng’s engineer husband Otto Poon over suspected unauthorised structures at their homes in Tuen Mun.
