he didn’t answer when asked whether Ho had hit his head before being hospitalized and made no further comment before leaving in a black Mercedes-Benz driven by a chauffeur.
About a dozen journalists were gathered outside the hospital seeking information from relatives who have been visiting Ho, who made his fortune running Macau casinos for more than 40 years.
Ho was in intensive care in the hospital after brain surgery to remove a blood clot, the South China Morning Post reported yesterday. The tycoon injured his head in an accident at home, a business associate close to Ho was cited as saying.
Ho’s spokeswoman, Janet Wong, said in a statement on August 4 the tycoon was recovering after surgery. Wong didn’t answer the phone in her office earlier today.
