A woman who 'loaned' Annie Pang Chor-ying a bank account that the model used to receive payments from John Fang Meng-sang denied yesterday that she had lied to the police. Yu Yim-sheung rejected suggestions at the inquest into Pang's death that she had concealed a relationship between her brother-in-law, Sit Ping-hung, and the model in case he was linked to the death. She said she did not know Mr Sit, her ex-husband's younger brother, was the model's last boyfriend before she died. The coroner's court heard Ms Yu had told the police in a statement on October 9, 1999 - two days after Pang's skeleton was found in a Yau Ma Tei flat owned by Mr Fang, the brother of former chief secretary Anson Chan Fang On-sang - that she did not know Mr Sit. Yesterday she explained the statement had been taken about the time she was divorced from her husband, Sit Kwan, and she had therefore been 'not in a good mood' to mention anything about his family. Ms Yu said she did not know Pang and Sit Ping-hung were lovers or had cohabited. She also denied she had deliberately hidden his identity from police hoping they would not find out about his relationship with Pang. Ms Yu told the inquest she had opened an HSBC bank account in her name for Pang in September 1994. She said Pang had asked her to do this shortly after they had first met to play mahjong in Tsz Wan Shan Estate. Coroner's officer Dee Crebbin suggested Pang's account had been overdrawn and Ms Yu's account was used to avoid the bank taking Pang's money for repayment. But Ms Yu said she had never asked Pang for details. The court heard Ms Yu had said in her 1999 statement to police that Pang had told her 'she would use the account for several months only for her friend to deposit money for her'. Yesterday Ms Yu said she did not know it was Mr Fang who had deposited money into the account for Pang every month. The court was told that Pang was fond of playing mahjong and had once offered Ms Yu a free trip to Macau to gamble, in which Pang had lost more than $20,000. Ms Yu said she knew Pang took sleeping pills but did not know if Pang had taken other drugs. The inquest before Coroner Colin Mackintosh and five jurors continues today.
