Tycoon Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum has dodged the limelight since a High Court judgment last month that she 'probably' forged the will of her late husband. But in her two public appearances since the probate battle over control of her Chinachem property empire, she pledged to fight to clear her name. In both appearances, Mrs Wang laughed and made off-the-cuff remarks to reporters and photographers about the appeal she is expected to launch. This presented a marked contrast to her previous relations with the media, when she almost never spoke to reporters. Mrs Wang was yesterday questioned by police investigating the forging of her late husband Teddy Wang Teh-huei's will. Two days after the November 21 court judgment that led to the police investigation, the tycoon appeared as a special guest at the 10th anniversary dinner of the Chinese University's School of Pharmacy in Sha Tin. Wearing a dark traditional cheongsam, black pants and high heels, Mrs Wang said as she entered the university's dining hall that she would appeal. Her lawyers at Johnson Stokes and Master had already announced in a press statement that an appeal was being prepared. 'Can you guess what my mood is right now? Very good, I tell you,' she told reporters asking whether she was depressed at the probate hearing's result. 'Appeal? Yes of course [I] will appeal.' Asked whether she felt confident about her planned appeal, she said 'yes'. Mrs Wang has no formal ties with the university but has extensive dealings and investments in bio-technology companies and research facilities in Hong Kong, the mainland and the United States. In her second appearance, on November 29, she gave a 'V' for victory sign as she left the International Trade and Exhibition Centre in Kowloon Bay. She was there as one of the election panel members who voted for SAR deputies to the National People's Congress. The 172-day probate hearing - Hong Kong's longest civil case, which started on August 6 last year - involved Mrs Wang and her father-in-law, Wang Din-shin, in a battle over the control the $27 billion Chinachem empire. Mr Justice David Yam Yee-kwan ruled in favour of the elder Wang and concluded the will was forged - and that Mrs Wang was 'probably' responsible for forging at least part of it. The handwritten will, granting everything to Mrs Wang and proclaiming her as Teddy Wang's 'one love', was supposedly written in 1990, shortly before his kidnapping in April that year. He has not been seen since and was declared dead in 1999. Mrs Wang has an estimated fortune of about $29 billion, according to Forbes magazine.
