Haulers get their day in court
July 14, 2009
Even clearing out all the evidence presented during the probate battle between Chinachem Charitable Foundation and Tony Chan Chun-chuen proved exhausting and high-profile.
It took legal staff nearly an hour to photograph all the evidence at the Court of First Instance before clearing it away. The 38-day trial over the assets of billionaire Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum ended on Friday.
Lawyers for both sides will make their closing submissions on September 21.
The evidence is said to include intimate photos of Wang and Chan, and jade pieces recovered from holes dug in Chinachem sites.
Also cleared away were paintings worth millions, and a camera that originally belonged to Wang’s husband, Teddy Wang Teh-huei, which she had given to Chan.
They were boxed and carted away in vans, with the media clicking away at the haulers.
