A 'selfish' husband whose wife is accused of hurling sulphuric acid in the face of his mistress admitted in court yesterday he had wanted both women. Fong Shu-ming, 51, said he had 'been torn apart' by the women as each had repeatedly asked him to abandon the other. He had hoped they would accept a 'love triangle'. 'My wife repeatedly asked me to give up Hui Fung-kuen while she often demanded that I divorce my wife or she would set fire to my home,' Mr Fong told the District Court. 'I admit I am very selfish. All along I wanted the three of us to be together. I thought I could live with my wife and stay with Ms Hui as well.' Wife Lin Wai-ying, 48, has denied throwing corrosive fluid with intent on Ms Hui, 36. Ms Hui's face was badly scarred in the incident. When asked by barrister Mui Kwok-keung, acting for Lin, Mr Fong said the scarring was an accident. Mr Fong said that on September 7 last year Ms Hui came to his home in Fu Tung House, Tung Tau Estate, Wong Tai Sin. While they were chatting outside the flat, Mr Fong said his wife, who had been cleaning the toilet, came outside. The two women struggled and some liquid being carried by the accused spilled out of the bottle. All three were injured, he said. The court heard Mr Fong and Ms Hui first met at work in 1994 and became lovers the next year. Mr Fong said he gave Ms Hui $500,000 as a 'separation fee'. Deputy Judge Abu Bakar bin Wahab adjourned the case until April 29.
