Man accuses friend of forgery, but police question account

An unemployed 66-year-old man, surnamed Lok, has allegedly falsely accused his friend of forging his signature to authorize the sale of his flat. After investigating, the Judiciary Police obtained proof that the signature on the authorization letter was in fact Lok’s own. The police also discovered that in 1996, Lok owed his friend MOP396,000 and had to sell his flat, which was located near the Red Market, to repay the debt. He earned about MOP1 million from the sale. Half of this went to Lok’s wife, while the other half was used to settle the debt. The police pointed out that Lok’s wife’s signature was also required in order to sell the flat, which suggests that the accusation was false. However, Lok has denied this.
