Macau gambling industry figure Ng Man-sun (left) is offering a HK$10 million reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the mastermind behind a recent attack on him.

Ng, 65, also known as Ng Wai but better known in Macau and Hong Kong by his nickname, 'Street Market Wai' , was savagely attacked by six men wielding hammers and sticks, who rushed into a hotel he owns as he dined with a woman last month. He was seriously injured and is still in hospital.

He published a quarter-page advertisement in the Macao Daily News yesterday, saying he wanted the mastermind and the attackers.

'Anyone who can provide intelligence to the judiciary police that leads to the arrest and sentencing of the mastermind behind the case could receive the HK$10 million reward, including the six attackers who assaulted me,' he said.

He also said he would 'plead for leniency' to the judge if any of the six attackers could provide information 'to compensate evil with good'.

Ng, one of the longest tenured VIP junket operators in Macau, has been involved in a dispute over the ownership of the New Century Hotel, which forced the hotel to close temporarily early this month. He had earlier issued an open letter seeking a meeting to oust eight directors of Hong Kong-listed entertainment company Amax Holdings, in which he was the main shareholder.

In the advertisement, Ng listed some scenarios concerning the attacks, implying they could have been the work of insiders.

He said the person behind the attack had the power to order hotel staff to turn off the CCTV monitors in the location where he was attacked and to order security guards to leave. The mastermind also knew exactly where he would be at that time.

A Macau judiciary police spokesman said the advertisement did not have police approval. The police were putting all their efforts into investigating the case, he said.
