Former BIH Director Back In Court Over Wrongful Dismissal Claim

Former BIH Director Lee Yiu Tung was in court today in Hong Kong over his claim for wrongful dismissal after being disqualified from being a director by Birmingham International Holdings in January of this year.

Oriental Daily reports that Lee has claimed HKD1.48mil in damages (circa £120k) in lieu of notice from BIH whilst the company have launched a counter-claim of HKD2.45mil (circa £200k) for breach of integrity.

At a prior Labour Tribunal hearing Lee claimed he was forced out of his position illegally after he started to question the financial governance of BIH and also of Birmingham City and in particular the management of CEO Peter Pannu. The hearings were forced into the High Court due to the value of the claims and the amount of witnesses Lee intends to call to support his case.

There has been no further dates for the full hearings set as of yet but when I become aware I will update the blog.

    This could be more interesting than the Carson Yeung case. We’ll maybe find out a bit more about what’s been going on over there.

    “The financial governance of BIH and also of Birmingham City and in particular the management of CEO Peter Pannu.”

    Will those details be made known to the public, or will they be kept private? I wonder.

  • Tony says:

    This could be very interesting.

    hong kong, bored with this club being dragged through the mud, just plain bored with
    the hole episode, good ridance to the lot of them! KRO( without them)

  • Teej says:

    it’ll all come out in the wash!

  • dave mann says:

    weve been dragged through the mud long enough so it had better come out in the wash lol.KRO.

  • Frankie says:

    Am sure it’ll all come out in the ‘laundry’.

  • Paul says:

    I know its off beat, but what about Sammy Yu,s bid to buy Sheffield Wednesday.
    Seemed like a decent guy to me. Shame he was lead a merry dance by Pannu and Yeung!

    • Chris says:

      Will be interesting if he does buy Wednesday and for how much as they are losing £5 million a year, so either he and his consortium have some readies, or he cuts the wages or borrows the money like Yeung has done.

    • BhamCityJulian says:

      IMO they are welcome to him

  • Oldbluenose says:

    Will we actually learn anything helpfull, that helps us, ?.

    I hope it is not to long in the future though, !!.

  • Blues for life 71 says:

    I’m with you on that one Dave Mann B O R E D with the whole boring saga sick of reading about day this in Hong Kong day that in Hong Kong and nothing we could do about proceedings even if we wanted to so i’m off to buy a Villa matchday magazine far more interesting and riveting read !!

    • almajir says:

      I’d suggest that if you don’t like reading it you don’t have to, just don’t read it. ;)

      • StaffsBlue says:

        It’ll keep us amused until The CY case resumes. :)

      • Blues for life 71 says:

        thats a good suggestion !! sometimes though you actually exel and put something we really care about ……

      • DoctorD pointedly says:

        I don’t think Bluesforlife71 was denigrating your work Al; more just pissed off that things are dragging on so much. In other words, he would rather we didn’t have to read about the court case becuase it was done and dusted.

  • AR says:

    Keep informing us on what is happening in Hong Kong which is relevant to our club and those who want to remain ignorant of these events, may I suggest that they keep quiet.

  • bluenoserob says:

    couldnt agree with dave mann more , im sick to death with all this stuff.Im not sticking my head in the sand , its just i cant be bothered to worry about it any more ,

  • bluenoserob says:

    i wasnt having a go at dan by the way , the info he has brought us in the last year and a half has often felt like a life line to us fans .

  • bluenoserob says:

    just wish we hade positive football stuff to talk about

  • peter bates says:

    i for one am not interested in this mans dismissal case because he probably had his share of the pie before his dismissal thanks to op for reporting it but i think most supporters only want to see the news the club has been sold and the demise of cy pp and all their cronies at bihl good riddance to them kro

  • BhamCityJulian says:

    If Captain Pantastic is shown in an unfavourable light I’ll enjoy him trying to spin his way out of it.

  • peter bates says:

    these people dont care about us fans or the club so they wont worry about having to squirm they have bled the club dry and continue to do so and will probably enjoy being in the spotlight once again

  • bluenose08 says:

    Thanks for informing us of these events as it may shed some light at what else has been going on at bih and what peter pannu and his cronies have been up to. kro,

    • StaffsBlue says:

      That’s what it’s all about for me too. I couldn’t care less about the individuals, or the result of the case. It’s the info that could come out about the ‘business practices’ of BIHL and PP that matters.

  • blooflame says:

    It just gets worse and worse, we’re just sinking in a storm of court cases, on top of that we are fielding a disjointed team who so far have no structure. Bracing myself for another season of “more of the same”

  • Pete says:

    This case will probably take God knows how long as well though…. Maybe too late b the time information comes out for it to make any difference.
