SINGAPORE - In the latest update in the tussle over Madam Chung Khin Chun's will, former China tour guide Yang Yin has been slapped with another 15 charges - five for cheating, eight under the companies act and two for criminal breach of trust, according to media reports.
He was previously charged with immigration offences and the falsification of receipts made to his company Young Music and Dance Studio.
The Straits Times reported that Yang now faces 349 charges altogether. He has been imprisoned and denied bail since Oct 31.
He is also involved in another lawsuit with the Madam Hedy Mok, Madam Chung's niece. She has alleged that Yang had manipulated her aunt into handing over her assets worth $40 million.
Madam Chung had made a new will last Saturday which cut Yang out of her inheritance. She also stated that $500,000 be given to Madam Chang Phie Chin, a close friend and another $500,000 to her only sister, Doris.
According to The Straits Times, the rest of Madam Chung's money will go into setting up a charitable trust named the Dr Chou Sip King Trust, in honour of her late husband - a general practitioner who died in 2007.
