A ROAST meat worker stabbed a fellow clansman with a pair of scissors in his sleep, the District Court heard yesterday. Ng Chak-hung, represented by counsel Tom Cheng, pleaded not guilty to wounding Chan Loi-fat, 38, with intent. According to a medical report submitted to the court, Ng first attended the Yau Ma Tei Psychiatric Centre in 1986 with symptoms of persecutory delusion and auditory hallucination. The report says Ng suffered from schizophrenia. Ng claimed that he had decided to attack Chan because Chan had frequently borrowed money from him without paying it back, the report reads. Judge Chua heard that Ng and Chan sneaked into Hong Kong from China in 1974. Ng continued to visit Chan when Chan was serving a prison term for offences including blackmail. Chan moved into Ng's house at Tai Wor Ping temporary housing area in Kowloon after Chan was released from jail in 1990. In her opening address, Crown Counsel Phyllis Wong said the relationship between the two deteriorated due to rows over money. In the evening of June 11, the two again argued. Ng allegedly asked Chan to move out of the house, but Chan refused. Ng then packed his clothes and left. Ng returned at 12.30 am the next day with two fruit knives and a pair of scissors. Four-and-a-half hours later, Ng stabbed Chan with the pair of scissors in his sleep. Chan grabbed hold of Ng's hand while Ng took out one of his knives and stabbed Chan's leg several times. The case continues today.
