A Sheung Shui man claimed yesterday he was tricked out of a $200,000 property he owned in Scotland by signing a paper he could not understand. The High Court writ said Lau Yuen-hoi owned a property in St Andrews in Fife, Scotland, but agreed to hand half of it over to Lau Ting-ki when he died. The two visited Scotland on February 5 and went to what Mr Lau Yuen-hoi believed was a lawyer's office, the writ said. An 'oriental lady' at the office took out a piece of paper and told Mr Lau Yuen-hoi to sign it, the writ claimed. 'She spoke in a language which sounded like Cantonese, but in a form and accent he did not understand.' On his return, Mr Lau Yuen-hoi found all the property was in Mr Lau Ting-ki's name. Mr Lau Ting-ki allegedly claimed the lawyers had made a mistake and promised to remedy it. The writ claims that that has not happened. Mr Lau Yuen-hoi wants the property back, costs and interests.
