Hong Kong Tycoons’ Brother Arrested in Graft Probe

The estranged brother of two Hong Kong billionaire property developers ensnared in a high-profile anti-corruption probe has been arrested as part of the investigation into alleged bribery. Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd. said Friday that Walter Kwok, who is a non-executive director of the company, was arrested by anti-corruption police on Thursday night and later released on bail.
