Carson Yeung's Failed bid to ....

Post  hootie63 on Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:40 pm

Carson Yeung has tried to get his Court case delayed until June 2013 but has failed and the case will proceed as normal on 28th November when hopefully the full truth will be known and we can move on.

Carson Yeung, who controls English soccer club Birmingham City, lost a bid to delay his trial on money laundering charges until June.
Hong Kong District Court Judge Stanley Chan today dismissed the argument of Yeung’s lawyer that the freezing of the businessman’s assets has prevented him hiring a defense team to prepare for trial next week. The court action will begin on Nov. 28 as scheduled, Chan said.
Birmingham International Holdings Ltd. (2309), the West Midlands- based team’s parent company, has been suspended in Hong Kong since June 2011 when its chairman Yeung was charged with five counts of money laundering with a total value of HK$721.3 million ($93 million). Yeung has posted HK$8 million in bail and was refused permission to leave Hong Kong.
Yeung bought the team, which was relegated from the elite Premier League in 2011, for 81.5 million pounds ($130 million) in 2009. Birmingham International said last month it was in talks with two possible buyers of the team.
The company also announced last month that its auditor BDO had resigned citing reservations over its internal controls and further delaying the release of its results.
The case is Hong Kong SAR v. Yeung Ka-sing Carson, DCCC860/2011 in the Hong Kong District Court.

Birmingham acting chairman Peter Pannu has cast doubt over Gianni Paladini's £30 million bid to buy the club - by announcing the Blues are in advanced negotiations with Hong Kong buyers.


Birmingham acting chairman Peter Pannu has cast doubt over Gianni Paladini's £30 million bid to buy the club - by announcing the Blues are in advanced negotiations with Hong Kong buyers.



Paladini has been kept waiting for over two weeks regarding his attempted buy-out of Birmingham owner Carson Yeung, who is on trial for alleged money laundering charges in Hong Kong.

The former Queens Park Rangers chairman threatened to pull out of negotiations a week ago, after Pannu denied any negotiations with Paladini.

Paladini has been left reeling by another snub from Pannu in the form of a Birmingham International Holdings Limited statement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, which suggests the mystery Hong Kong consortium are now in pole position to take charge of the club.

Birmingham's parent company BIHL have admitted to being in talks with three interested parties, which casts further doubt over Paladini's chances of gaining control at St Andrew's.

The statement says: "The negotiation with one of the parties in Hong Kong is at an advanced stage although no conditional binding agreement had been entered into between the parties.

"The transaction, if it proceeds, will constitute a very substantial disposal transaction by the Company under the Listing Rules and will be subject to the approval of the shareholders in a general meeting.

"A detailed announcement will be made as and when appropriate. The Board further wishes to urge the shareholders not to react to speculative media reports and to rely on official announcements.

"Given the fact that confidential non-disclosure agreements had been entered into with three of the parties who are still in pursuit, two in Hong Kong and one in the United Kingdom, it is inappropriate to divulge detailed information of the status of the negotiations.

"The Board wishes to inform the shareholders that the criteria that the Board shall adopt in this disposal would be to identify a new owner who could take BCFC to the next level both in terms of their financial standing, business acumens and overall suitability and the nature of their offer and the overall terms of the offer.

"A balance will be struck between what is the most beneficial for the shareholders and what is the most appropriate for the development of BCFC as the Board acknowledges that football is a business where, inter alia, the aspirations of the fans need to be considered."
