Peter Chan Chun-chuen

Peter Chan Chun-chuen, who used to go by Tony Chan, is a Hong Kong-born businessman and former fung shui practitioner born in December 1959. In 2013, Chan went on trial accused of forging the will of Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum, the late chairwoman of Chinachem and Asia's richest woman. Chan denied the charges, but was found guilty in the Court of First Instance on July 4, 2013.
