Ten men have been arrested over the kidnapping of a 57-year-old Hong Kong businessman in Fujian , with the victim's cousin allegedly the main conspirator. Ransom money totalling about 1.2 million yuan was recovered, Xinhua reported. The main suspect, surnamed Ng, is believed to have conspired with another man to commit the kidnap. Both men had heavy gambling debts, police said. The victim, surnamed Cheung, was kidnapped on August 26 soon after leaving his weaving factory in Jinjiang, Fujian. Ng, Mr Cheung's cousin, had been working at the factory as his assistant. Mr Cheung was told by the kidnappers to phone his cousin and a ransom of 2 million yuan was demanded. Mr Cheung and his driver were released unharmed the next day after the money was paid. He reported the case to police in Jinjiang on August 28 and Ng was arrested two weeks ago, Xinhua said. Police said Ng admitted committing the kidnappings and plotting six other unsuccessful kidnappings since June last year.
