A WOMAN yesterday denied forging her mother's signature on a will in a bid to cheat her relatives out of their share of a $33 million inheritance. Leung May-chun, 48, said she could not understand why forensic experts had given evidence that the signature was not her mother's. 'If it was not signed by my mother it must have been signed by me. But I did not sign it. I was wondering if I had gone crazy because it would be a crime if I had signed it,' she told the District Court. Leung added: 'I really don't understand it. All along I believed it was my mother who signed.' Leung has pleaded not guilty to possessing and using a false instrument. The court has heard the family expected the estate to be equally divided between Leung, her sister Leung Mei-chow, 42, and her sister-in-law, Yeung Mei-chung, 31. But after the death of the defendant's mother, Leung Suet-fun, on May 12, 1992, the elder daughter produced a Chinese will showing that the whole inheritance had been left to her. Leung claimed her mother would have had good reason to cut her sister-in-law out of the will. 'My sister-in-law often gambled - that was one reason. If my mother had wished to give her money she would have done so when she was alive,' the defendant added. But her mother had 'not seemed to care much', she said. The spinster went on: 'Do you think I am so selfish, getting everything for myself? The point is I am not married. I have no children. 'I am getting old. I can't take these things with me when I die. Sometime and somehow I will have to pass them on.' Asked if she considered the will to be an important document she said: 'I don't really know much about this kind of thing.' Prosecutor Alison Thompson put to her: 'The truth is this: either you forged the signatures yourself on that document or you instructed someone else to do so on your behalf.' Leung replied: 'I disagree.' The trial before Judge Lugar-Mawson continues. on Monday.
