An elderly man choked back tears yesterday as he begged the court to save him from his 'greedy' daughter and her 'groundless' demands. Moi Oak-wah, 80, had come before various judges and courts over the past five years to face his eldest child and only daughter, Mui Po-chu. Miss Mui has accused her father of failing to give her the one-sixth share of her late mother's estate to which she says she is entitled. The estate, comprising various properties, came from money Mr Moi, a pensioner, made in his early years as a businessman, the Court of First Instance heard. 'It is most unfortunate that what I worked so hard to earn when I was young would bring so much pain, more than five years of torture,' an emotional Mr Moi told Mr Justice Wally Yeung Chun-kuen. He asked the judge to spare him from having to answer further 'groundless' allegations by Miss Mui. 'She has shown her greedy nature in court,' Mr Moi said. Mr Justice Yeung said he understood Mr Moi's sentiments, but as a judge he had to rule on the evidence and be fair. 'You sit here, she sits there, and I sit in the middle,' the judge said. 'You have the absolute right to respond to any allegations levelled at you, but you do not have to,' he said. Mr Moi was reminded that should he choose to take the witness stand, Miss Mui would have the right to question him. The father of three chose not to testify or call any witnesses. Miss Mui described her father's comments as 'rubbish'. 'I consider myself good and honest in nature. I feel that the defendant is creating something out of nothing and talking nonsense,' Miss Mui said. She asked the judge to view a videotaped account of her dispute with her father, in which she claims she was defamed. 'It starts with how he threw my things into the street and the death of my mother,' said Miss Mui, who went to Britain in the 1980s to study law. Mr Justice Yeung refused to accept the video as evidence, saying it was not a defamation case. He will deliver a written judgment at a later date.
