Some of model Annie Pang Chor-ying's belongings were missing or damaged after they were returned to her family by the police following the end of the investigation into her death. Pang's elder sister, Pang Ngor, told the Coroner's Court yesterday that police seized two boxes of the model's pictures in October 1999, a year after her skeleton was found. When they were returned to the family in 2001, after the police announced that the case was closed, she found water stains and mould on some of the photographs. She said the damaged photos include those she took with her younger sister, and she could find only 10 or so pictures of Annie Pang, out of the two boxes, which were intact. She was later told by the police that the photos of her sister's boyfriend, John Fang Meng-sang, would be returned to him. Annie Pang's body was found in a flat owned by Mr Fang, the brother of former chief secretary Anson Chan Fang On-sang. She said that a watch, believed to be a gift to Annie Pang from Mr Fang, with his name engraved on the back was missing, too. Solicitor Mary Jean Reimer, representing the Pang family, exhibited Annie Pang's diary to the court yesterday when Miss Pang Ngor said there were missing pages after the police returned it to the family. 'It was intact when I first read it. I clearly saw the name of Mr Fang,' Miss Pang Ngor said, adding there was a page on which Annie Pang had written Mr Fang's name repeatedly. But this page was torn off when police returned the diary. Miss Pang Ngor said she last saw her sister in March 1995 at the Tai Hing police station in Fanling. She said she had given Annie Pang $2,000 bail money because her sister had no money to bail herself after being arrested in connection with a fight with her last known boyfriend, Sit Ping-hung. In response to questions by Coroner's officer Dee Crebbin, Miss Pang Ngor admitted that the family did not want to stay in contact with Annie Pang after receiving threats from a loanshark. She said Annie Pang, who received $10,000 to $20,000 from Mr Fang each month, would go to Macau to gamble. Her mother had received threats from a loanshark asking to settle her sister's debt for $40,000 in early 1994. Her mother had then changed her home telephone number. Contact between Annie Pang and her family became less frequent after this incident although she had once explained the money was a decoration fee which Mr Fang had failed to pay her, Miss Pang Ngor said. The family lost contact with Annie Pang in April 1995. The inquest before coroner Colin Mackintosh and five jurors continues today.
