Two men claiming to be triads went to a noodle shop to collect 'fees' - but were rebuffed by the owner's wife, a court heard yesterday. In March last year, Wong Man-kit, 36, and Wong Chi-hung, 37, claiming to be triad members, went to the restaurant in On Ting Estate, Tuen Mun, and left with $500, the District Court heard. The pair returned on August 12 demanding more money from the owner, Law Hung-chong, but he was too busy with customers and ignored them. The defendants fared no better with their demands to the owner's wife, Ly Quoc Tue. 'I told them this time I will not give any money,' Ms Ly told the court. 'I will call the police.' Wong Man-kit accused Ms Ly of trying to intimidate him, the court heard. She again rejected his demand and they went outside, where he produced a knife and waved it in front of her. The men each deny charges of blackmail and theft. Wong Man-kit also denies a charge of possession of an offensive weapon. The case continues before Judge Andrew Chung.
