Life and career

Teddy Wang cdn3iscmpcomsitesdefaultfilesstyleslandsca

Teddy Wang's hometown is Wenzhou and was born in Shanghai, China to Wenzhounese parents. He was a childhood playmate of Kung Yu Sam (aka Nina Wang). He was the son of Wang Din-shin, who had established a paint and chemical business. In 1948, when she was 11 and he 15, they renewed their friendship, and they married in 1955. The Wangs moved to Hong Kong, and the business became the Chinachem Group, eventually one of Hong Kong's largest and most powerful companies based on a lucrative pharmaceutical division.

Kidnapping and death in absentia

Wang was abducted on 12 April 1983, when his Mercedes was hijacked. He was taken away and chained to a bed for eight days until Nina Wang paid a ransom of 33 million Hong Kong dollars.

Wang was kidnapped again for a second time on 10 April 1990 as he left the Jockey Club in Hong Kong, at the age of 56. His abductors demanded HK$60 million. His wife Nina Wang paid an installment of 34 million Hong Kong dollars, but Wang was not returned. Several of the alleged kidnappers were caught and said that the 56-year-old Wang had been thrown into the sea from the sampan (a small Chinese boat where he was held) on 13 April 1990. His body was never found and he was declared legally dead in 1999. Wang's will was disputed by Nina Wang, the eventual chief beneficiary. According to the personal assistant on Nina Wang, Wang had received phone calls from Teddy up to the year 2000.
