Chinese Estates Holdings (0127) chairman Joseph Lau Luen-hung yesterday denied bribing ex- Macau official Ao Man-long. In a filing to the local bourse, Lau said he had not given Macau's former secretary for transport and public works "an unlawful advancement or bribe."

A company owned by Lau and South China Football Club chairman Steven Lo kit-sing won the tender for the sites, located opposite Macau's airport.
