Macau (MNA) – Macau businesswoman Cheyenne Chan Ung-iok, also sister-in-law of local gaming tycoon Stanley Ho, appeared at the District Court on Tuesday for a bribery case, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) reported.

Chan, former director-cum-shareholder of Helicopters Hong Kong Limited, Hong Kong Express Airways Limited and/or Heli Express Limited, is facing charges of offering an advantage to Wilson Fung Wing-yip, former Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Labour.

According to a press release by Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), the bribery case was related to a flats-swap deal, with Fung allegedly accepted a sum of HK$510,000 (US$64,974) from Chan as a reward for being favourably disposed to her and her three companies controlled by her or related to her in 2004.

Fung is facing one charge for accepting the advantage as a public servant.

He is also facing a count of misconduct as a public servant for allegedly using the sum as initial deposit to purchase a property.

The two were released on bail of HK$100,000 and HK$80,000, respectively, while they will enter a plea in the District Court on September 18.
