Yeung ordered to stay in Hong Kong
Friday 12 August 2011
A Hong Kong court has rejected Birmingham owner Carson Yeung's bid to attend the club's first home game of the season.
Yeung, charged with five counts of money laundering involving more than $92m (£57m), appeared in court yesterday offering to increase his bail to $385,000 so he could attend Birmingham's match against Coventry. But a magistrate ruled that Yeung must remain in Hong Kong at least until he enters a plea in a District Court on 30 August.
