Shanghai authorities have not received a request to send to Hong Kong property developer Chau Ching-ngai, who was released from jail last month after serving a three-year sentence for financial-related crimes. Shanghai city government spokeswoman Jiao Yang said she had not heard whether there would be a rendition 'or a handover, much less how to provide assistance'. The Shanghai Land boss, once named China's 11th richest man, remains on the Independent Commission Against Corruption's most-wanted list, on which he was placed last year. Mr Chau is wanted by the ICAC on suspicion of conspiring with others to defraud shareholders of an unnamed publicly listed company between October 2001 and May 2003. His wife, Mo Yuk-ping , is in jail in Hong Kong after being convicted on charges relating to the couple's listed companies. A spokeswoman for the ICAC said yesterday that since no rendition agreement existed between the mainland and the special administrative region, there was no procedure through which it could ask the authorities to bring Mr Chau to Hong Kong. 'Basically, if there's no rendition agreement, there's not much we can do,' she said. Mr Chau, 45, was reportedly taken from prison by private car to a luxury villa in western Shanghai after his release. He has previously expressed a wish to resume his business dealings. He was jailed for three years in June 2004 for manipulating stock prices and falsifying registered capital of subsidiaries of his flagship company, Nongkai Development Group. His lawyer said he was released early because of time served before his sentencing.
