Casino resort investor Landing International Development Ltd says it cannot account for unusual movements in the price of its stock on Tuesday and unusual volumes of the stock traded. The company told the Hong Kong Stock Exchange that in the absence of Landing International chairman Yang Zhihui, its other directors had made inquiries but had found nothing to add to what the company announced before.
Mr Yang owns a company that owns 50.48 percent of Landing International. Landing International told the stock exchange on Tuesday that its directors were unaware of any reasons for the sharp decline in the price of its stock, of any information that should be announced to avoid a false market in Landing International securities, or of any inside information that should disclosed to comply with the law.
Landing International told GGRAsia on September 10 that it had been unable to contact Mr Yang since August 23.
Landing International opened a foreigners-only casino at its Jeju Shinhwa World resort on the South Korean island of Jeju in February.
Lading saw its share price plummet from a peak around HKD5.00 a share in July and August.
Mr Yang controls a majority of the company’s shares. Industry sources had told GGRAsia he was reportedly last seen in Cambodia in late August. Shortly after that, an image was circulating online showing a person resembling Mr Yang airside on an airport’s tarmac, being escorted in handcuffs by two men.
