The death of casino magnate Stanley Ho has cast a renewed spotlight on the massive Ho clan, especially since the 98-year-old was believed to have left behind a TW$2 trillion (S$94.5bil) fortune. Although his youngest son Mario Ho has claimed that he's been allocated his share of his inheritance since he was 15, the media isn't quite convinced that everyone in the family has received — and is content with — what the late tycoon had left for them.
And they might be on to something.
Deborah Ho, 58, Stanley's youngest daughter with his first wife Clementina Angela Leitao, has filed a caveat with the High Court of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. This caveat, which was lodged with the Probate Registry, means that the courts will have to notify her and her lawyers if anyone raises a request to administer Stanley’s estate according to the directions in his will.
