The widow of a corrupt policeman agreed yesterday to turn her husband's millions over to the Government. The $12.84 million out-of-court settlement ended the Attorney-General's three-year battle for control of the disgraced sergeant's estate. Ma Man-leung is believed to have acquired a fortune in bribes and secret commissions during his 24 years with the police. Ma was arrested by the IndependentCommission Against Corruption in 1977 under the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance. He was charged with being in control of assets disproportionate to his official income. Ma was released on bail, but fled to Taiwan in May 1977, while his case was still under investigation. He died there in 1990. The Attorney-General's chambers began proceedings against Ma's estate in 1993. Widow Leung Kwai and two other defendants yesterday decided to end the battle outside the courtroom. They agreed to turn over $2.52 million in cash and $10.32 million in forfeited properties. The sergeant is believed to have accepted bribes in connection with the misuse of confidential information. Three Tsuen Wan shop spaces, a parking space and a flat in Mei Foo Sun Chuen were said to be among the properties Ma acquired through corrupt payments. He served with the force from 1946 until 1970. The ICAC expressed delight at yesterday's victorious outcome. A spokesman said the case 'demonstrates the ICAC's determination to go after the corrupt and their ill-gotten gains'.
