Carson Yeung Ka-sing, jailed in 2014 for laundering more than HK$700 million in Hong Kong, failed in his last-ditch bid to reclaim freedom on Monday, losing his appeal at the city’s top court.
Born in February 1960, Carson Yeung Ka-sing is a Hong Kong businessman and former hairdresser best known as the owner of Birmingham FC. He is also chairman and executive director of Birmingham International Holdings, an investment, entertainment and sportswear firm registered in the Cayman Islands. In June 2011, Yeung was arrested at his Hong Kong home in connection with alleged money laundering. He was subsequently charged with dealing with property known or believed to represent proceeds of an indictable offence.
