A definition of Lévy processes with values in the space of probability measures was introduced by Shiga and Tanaka (Electronic J. Prob. 11 (2006)). It is shown that the Lévy process with values in the space of probability measures in law has a modification satisfying a certain condition. The modification is a Lévy process in the sense of Shiga and Tanaka. The Lévy-Itô decomposition of sample paths of the Lévy process satisfying the condition is derived.
