A case that has transfixed Hong Kong for much of the past year came to a close Tuesday, with a judge denying a feng shui master’s claims that he is the rightful heir to the estate of one of the world’s richest women.
Nina Wang, the chairwoman of chemical company Chinachem, one of Hong Kong’s largest real estate companies, died in 2007, leaving behind a fortune estimated by Forbes to be $4.2 billion. Within days of her death, Tony Chan, a practitioner of feng shui, a traditional Chinese practice of aligning structures to maximize positive energy, claimed Wang had left him everything in a 2006 will, contradicting a 2002 will in which Wang had left everything to a charitable foundation.
