Late singer's mother hit with bankruptcy bid

A law firm has taken out a bankruptcy petition against the mother of late singer Anita Mui Yim-fong after she failed to pay HK$2.24 million in legal fees she racked up during the legal battle for her daughter's fortune. Chiu, Szeto & Cheng Solicitors submitted the petition to the High Court on Friday after Tam Mei-kam, 87 (below), failed to comply with a court order to pay the fee. In May, the Court of Final Appeal rejected Tam's last attempt to challenge the validity of Mui's will. Austin Chiu
