Court refuses to release money of Nina Wang's father-in-law The administrators of the estate of Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum failed yesterday to persuade the High Court to release immediately HK$500,000 left with the court by her father-in-law, Wang Din-shin, who died this month. The money had been intended to settle part of the legal fees the court had ordered Wang Din-shin to pay. In a hearing lasting just a few minutes, court registrar Queeny Au Yeung Kwai-yue told lawyer Herbert Tsoi Hak-kong for the administrators of Nina Wang's estate that the court would have difficulty ordering the release of the money without the presence of a personal representative of Wang Din-shin. Tsoi appeared in the court to apply for the release of the sum. The case was adjourned to September 15 to give Tsoi more time to identify the representatives of the father-in-law and to prepare to apply for the release of the money.
