HONG KONG, March 8 (Reuters) - The two billionaire co-chairmen of property goliath Sun Hung Kai Properties and a former senior government official pleaded not guilty on Friday to involvement in one of Hong Kong's biggest corruption cases.
In a pre-trial hearing, five defendants, including Thomas and Raymond Kwok of Sun Hung Kai Properties, listened to eight charges against them before pleading not guilty. The others were former Hong Kong No. 2 official Rafael Hui, another Sun Hung Kai executive, Thomas Chan, and businessman Francis Kwan.
