Albert Tsang Hon-kin says he must resort to hyperbole when discussing the legal team that fought and failed in the epic battle on behalf of a frail 93-year-old man for the control of his late son's estate. They call themselves 'The Three Musketeers' who for eight years have undertaken a 'David and Goliath' battle on behalf of Wang Din-shin against the might of Nina Wang's well-funded phalanx of lawyers. Joining Mr Tsang, who leads the trio, is Edward Chan King-sang, SC, and junior barrister Victor Luk Ying-wah. Advising them is K.M. Chan and Co, a one-man show run by Chan Kwok-ming, or 'KM' as he is affectionately known to the 'musketeers'. The trio said they saw the case as a mission for justice and that it was not about money - they were unsure they would be paid. 'It is very difficult once you start a legal action to just walk away and not finish what you started, especially when you are dealing with an old man,' Mr Tsang said. At every turn they have been 'frustrated' by a team 'determined to stretch out the legal process for as long as possible', he said. 'What this case definitely shows you is that there is no doubt there is one law for the super-rich and another for everyone else.' During eight years of drama, the defence used 'all sorts of tricks' to obstruct the legal process, Mr Tsang said. 'They won't give you documents until the last minute, and when they do, they give them to us at lunchtime on a Friday so we only have the weekend to look over them. 'They are constantly bending the rules and playing in grey areas.' On several occasions, he said, they considered complaining to the judge 'but the judges will get angry if you always go to them'. Before yesterday, they gathered without Edward Chan, knowing that if the decision was overturned, it was the end of Mr Wang's fight, for he no longer has the means to continue. 'What we will always have known is that we did the right thing by him and ourselves,' he said. 'But losing now is like falling from a cliff.'
