Shaw may be buried in city-state

SING Tao Daily reported said that Hong Kong media mogul Sir Run Run Shaw’s family would bury his ashes overseas, while Apple Daily reported that they could be placed in Singapore – where he started his business and met his first and second wives.

Shaw went to Singapore from Shanghai to help his older brother Runme Shaw run the movie business in 1924. He moved to Hong Kong in 1959 to develop his own business.

His four children were brought up in Singapore by his brother.

Apple Daily said Shaw’s decision to be laid to rest in Singapore could also be due to the fact that his brother was buried in Singapore.

Shaw died on Tuesday at the age of 106. He was cremated in Hong Kong on Friday. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
