TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Former EVA Airways Chairman Chang Kuo-wei was asking for a review of the financial statements of a key overseas-registered Evergreen Group affiliate for the past five years, reports said Tuesday.
The demand, reportedly made through his attorney to one of the persons in charge of group founder Chang Yung-fa’s will, was seen as the latest battle in the fight over the tycoon’s inheritance between his two widows.
Last week, Chang Kuo-wei, the only son of the founder’s second wife, was ousted from his position as chairman of the group’s airline after he had also seen Evergreen’s management headquarters disbanded, dislodging him from the overall leadership of the powerful corporation, which includes one of the world’s largest shipping companies.
