Legco election candidate Helen Chung Yee-fong impersonated someone else to push through the sale of her flat, a court heard yesterday. Barrister Kenneth Chow Charn-ki said lawyer Ms Chung was motivated by desire for money. 'Greed was written on the face of the documents,' he said. 'There's no other word for it.' Mr Chow accused Ms Chung of 'not being slow to make use of her position to bully the other side'. He was speaking in the Court of First Instance, where Panlead Development Limited is suing Ms Chung for damages and the return of a $200,000 deposit on a flat and carport in Braemar Hill Mansions, Quarry Bay. Ms Chung is contesting Kowloon West in the forthcoming election. She has formed her own party, the Patriotic Party for the People's Prosperity and Advancement. Panlead paid the deposit on June 28, 1992, after signing an agreement to buy the property for $4.8 million, the court heard. But Panlead later discovered Ms Chung was being sued by another purchaser for keeping its deposit on the same property. Sarrayo Investment Company Limited had agreed to buy the flat four years earlier, the court heard. Panlead wrote to Ms Chung's solicitor, expressing concern that the initial agreement had not been cancelled and suggesting its deposit be held in trust until the matter was resolved. Ms Chung was said to have responded by accusing Panlead of behaving unreasonably and breaching their agreement. She told Panlead it had forfeited its deposit, the court was told. More than a year later, Ms Chung had agreed to sell the flat to a different buyer for $6.45 million. But the Sarrayo agreement was still in the way, Mr Chow said. 'The defendant impersonated Sarrayo and cancelled on behalf of Sarrayo,' he said. 'If that had not been done, there's no way the defendant could have sold the property.' The hearing continues before Mr Justice Michael Hartmann.
