MALAYSIA - Datuk Lau Chong Wang, chairman and managing director of Leong Hup Holdings Bhd, died on 5 September.

His death, from liver cancer, was reported by New Straits Times. He was 68 years old.

Lau was the brother of Lau Bong Wong, Datuk Lau Eng Guang, Tan Sri Francis Lau Tuang Nguang and Lau Chun Yuen, the directors and major shareholders of LHH.

According to Francis, his brother's body was flown back yesterday and the funeral will be held on Friday at his residence in Muar, Johor.
