International press report the latest on Pauline Chai case

International press report the latest on Pauline Chai case

Press around the world reported on the latest hearing in the divorce between Malaysian former beauty queen Pauline Chai and her tycoon husband Khoo Kay Peng.

The hearing focused on the Laura Ashley chairmans failure to comply with court orders compelling him to pay his wife £50,000 in interim maintenance. The husband was described as feckless in court for his refusal to satisfy the orders, in words which were reported in the Malay Mail, Bloomberg and the Daily Telegraph. Ayesha Vardag, who represents Pauline Chai in her divorce, said his flagrant decision to breach the judges order and pay her not one penny is particularly shameful.

The husband was further criticised for not making a single offer to settle the case during the course of proceedings, and was accused of thumbing his nose at the English proceedings.
