Slain Hong Kong model Abby Choi’s ex-husband jailed for 3½ years for HK$6.3 million gold theft


The former husband of slain Hong Kong socialite Abby Choi Tin-fung has been sentenced to 3½ years in jail for stealing HK$6.3 million (US$806,860) worth of gold and jewellery and escaping before his trial began in 2015.

The District Court on Wednesday jailed Alex Kwong Kong-chi on seven charges, including six counts of theft arising from a fraudulent scheme in which he lured investors into buying a variety of jewellery, then persuaded them to hand the items over so he could use them to speculate in the gold market.
