Peter Chan was sentenced to 12 years after being convicted in 2013, but has been released early for good behaviour.
Prophecies, mystical numbers and holy voices have left jailed feng shui conman Peter Chan Chun-chuen "joyful" after his first two weeks behind bars - and he has already started writing a book, according to one of his visitors.
Jailed former fung shui master Peter Chan Chun-chuen filed an appeal yesterday against his conviction and 12-year jail term for forging and using a fake will said to belong to late tycoon Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum, a source familiar with the situation said.
After Teddy Wang Teh-huei disappeared, his widow, Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum, fought through Hong Kong's courts for eight years to establish the validity of a will that entitled her to inherit the Chinachem Group, as opposed to an earlier will in favour of her father-in-law. Despite this ordeal, she did nothing to prevent a similar situation - the emergence of two wills - arising after her own death.
Looking scared and red-faced, Peter Chan Chun-chuen was locked up on Thursday after he was found guilty of forging a will purportedly left by late billionaire Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum. After almost 20 hours of deliberation, a Court of First Instance jury of five men and three women found the 53-year-old businessman, previously known as Tony Chan, guilty of forgery and using a false instrument. He will be sentenced today.
Alleged will forger Peter Chan Chun-chuen was accused by the prosecution in High Court on Wednesday of playing on the superstition and loneliness of Nina Wang and treating her as a means to become rich.
