    Hope he had proper insurance for such a valuable collection.

    Too many holes:

    Storing $billions of valuable collectors; items just stored in a flat.............................even the HKMOA. wouldn't do that and their exhibits probably have less political and cultural significance.

    Helpful of them to leave the door open after ransacking the place too...second the hope that he has insurance.

    As a collector I worry more about the stamps then about the owner.

    It's like HSBC. storing their cash stock in 7/11 and complaining when/if they're stolen.

    Have to agree...something does not add up. There is certainly more to this story than meets the eye. The only question...is what kind of crooked and sordid tale lies hidden beneath this burglary?

    A long time since I have read such a strange and improbable story. The Hk$4Bn valuables were in a locked drawer in the flat that he used as a storage facility while he lived in mainland China?
    I expect to hear next that they will be giving trump the Nobel peace prize.
