A lawyer yesterday confirmed that the Chinachem Charitable Foundation had asked for an injunction to freeze HK$141 million of embattled businessman Tony Chan Chun-chuen's assets. Temporary administrator Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, which is seeking HK$130 million in legal fees spent on the estate battle, has already secured an order to freeze that amount of Chan's assets. Wilkinson and Grist partner Keith Ho Man-kei said his client Chinachem had made the request earlier and that the foundation and Chan (pictured) would discuss it at a hearing on Friday. Last year Chan lost his court battle against Chinachem over the estate of late Chinachem Group chairwoman Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum when the Court of Final Appeal ruled against him. Wang, once Asia's richest woman, left a fortune estimated at HK$50 billion when she died of cancer in 2007, aged 69. Chan must pay the legal fees for the foundation, the temporary administrator of Wang's estate, and the Department of Justice, which took part in that case. The court also ordered Chan to disclose all assets worth at least HK$100,000 by tomorrow. Chan is estimated to have assets worth HK$511 million. Chan told the South China Morning Post yesterday that he was still considering whether to disclose his assets tomorrow or pay the legal fees to the temporary administrator. He has previously said he did not want to disclose his assets because of privacy concerns. The court was earlier told that Chan needed to sell or mortgage his Mid-Levels property to raise funds. He said he was discussing with his counsel what to do about the HK$141 million asset injunction. 'It involves many legal and technical issues. We will oppose it if necessary.' Chan said he had moved out of his luxury home on The Peak and was now living in Southern District. He claimed Wang left him her fortune in a 2006 will out of love, but the court found the document was a forgery and upheld a will bequeathing the money to the foundation. Chan has been charged over the will. Pre-trail hearings are set for March 23 and May 14.
