New Century Hotel was yesterday temporarily closed to guests, after a messy row between shareholders Ng Wai and Chen Meihuan emerged. Its Greek Mythology casino, run under SJM Holdings Ltd's gaming licence, remained open all time. An alleged representative from Ms. Chen said Mr. Ng is no longer a shareholder of the Taipa hotel. Mrs Chen claims to own 80% of the hotel.
An alleged representative from Mr. Ng accused Ms. Chen of sending “some gangsters” to occupy the hotel. Unidentified people heavily attacked Mr Ng, better known as “Street Market Wai”, last month in a restaurant inside the hotel.
