Sacked executive sues Sing Pao owner over wages and leave The owner of the Chinese-language newspaper Sing Pao was being sued in Eastern Court yesterday for allegedly failing to pay HK$320,000 in wages and annual leave to former chief executive Lin Ning more than a year after he was sacked. Mr Lin, whose contract was terminated in April 2004, said he was not paid for his work between August and October that year, although the paper's board of directors had given him six months' notice in March. Sing Pao Newspaper Management argued there was no such agreement and no document to prove it. The case was adjourned to May 29 for a judgment.
