The jury took their time in reaching a guilty verdict, but after two days of deliberation Peter Chan was found guilty of forging Nina Wang will, one of the richest women in Asia. After Nina Wang’s death, Peter Chan claimed he was the only beneficiary of her estate. However, the will was counterfeit so the $4 billion dollar estate was left to charity.
