THE daughter-in-law of Sir Yuet-keung Kan yesterday persuaded her uncles to sell the $360 million Che San Building which is at the centre of a family row. Joyce Kan, 44, and her brothers had fallen out with their uncles over the 14-storey block in Central and a second $24 million property in Kennedy Town. Both buildings were originally owned by her father Fung Kam-chung and his five brothers, who also ran the Che San stationery business. But when Fung died in 1988, his share in the properties was divided among his widow Fung Young Shuit-po and their three children: Joyce, businessman Ian Fung, 40, and architect Joseph Fung, 44. This week, Fung's family and the children of a second deceased brother asked High Court judge Mr Justice Mayo to order the sale of both buildings. But the hearing came to an abrupt halt yesterday when the two sides decided to settle outside court. Afterwards, Ian Fung, who has just resigned from the family paper firm, said he was 'very happy' with the result. His uncle, George Fung, the chairman of the South China Paper Merchants Association, said the matter had been settled 'amicably' and both blocks would be sold. He said: 'It [the Che San Building] will be sold by auction next year - maybe after the Lunar New Year.' Sir Y. K. Kan, 82, the first local resident to receive the Knight Grand Cross, is a former chairman of the Bank of East Asia and the Trade Development Council and was a member of the executive, legislative and urban councils. The South China Morning Post erroneously reported yesterday that Sir Y. K. was dead.
