A feng shui master is suing two customers he says cost him HK$35 million by making false allegations about his services. Szeto Six-chuen, better known as Szeto Fat-ching, is accusing brother and sister Fung Kwok-keung and Fung Mei-yee of providing defamatory information to Next Magazine for a story published on December 25, a High Court writ revealed. Szeto, who famously gave evidence as a feng shui expert at a high-profile 2009 trial over the legacy of billionaire Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum, claimed the report damaged his reputation. "[Szeto]'s mental and emotional state was greatly affected by the publication," the writ says. "He was unable to focus on his work and had to consult a psychiatrist. "[The pair] unlawfully interfered with [Szeto]'s economic interest, namely, [Szeto]'s contracts, sponsorships, and/or the obtainment of business." Szeto claimed in the writ the siblings approached him in 2009 and asked him to cast life-threatening curses upon their brother and sister-in-law. But at Fung Mei-yee's insistence, he said he agreed to provide services to combat curses. In his writ, the master said Fung Mei-yee claimed to have been educated in Canada, and said her brother was a well-educated computer engineer. Szeto said he explained the procedures for combating black magic and curses to the pair, as well as the theory behind his work, before providing services between 2009 and 2013. According to the writ, the pair did not complain to him about his services before providing the information to the magazine. The master claimed the article indicated that the pair's luck did not improve after his work, and that they paid large sums of money but did not receive valuable services. Szeto claimed he did perform all the rituals and ceremonies the pair requested. He invited them to every ceremony and ritual but they refused to attend. The master claimed he lost a number of contracts worth a total of HK$35 million because of the article, including one from a Macau casino and another from a television programme he had hosted for 13 years. He demanded an injunction against further defamation and unspecified compensation from the pair.
