Benjamin Fok ordered to pay legal costs
(06-03 12:08)

In the latest development in the family feud over the estate of the late tycoon Henry Fok Ying-tung, a judge has ordered one of his sons, Benjamin Fok Chun-yu, to pay legal costs for his "deplorable litigation conduct".
The late tycoon's three wives and their children had reached a settlement on the distribution of his assets in 2012.
But Benjamin applied to reopen the case in the High Court, alleging his brothers hid information about an investment project from him. The judge rejected his bid in January.
Nora, a sister who sided with Benjamin, has also been ordered to pay part of the costs. --RTHK
