Gordon Oldham, a Hong Kong lawyer who represents Mr. Ho, released clips of videos in which his client says he wants to get back the holding company, known as Lanceford Co., and that he had been pressured to make the TV broadcast last week. "I want a fair division among my families," Mr. Ho told Mr. Oldham in one video clip shot at the billionaire’s home.In the clips, shot after Mr. Ho’s television broadcast, Mr. Oldham repeatedly asks a frail Mr. Ho if he was pressured by Pansy and the others. "I must read word by word from the plaque my [family] made with the help of Pansy and Daisy," Mr. Ho said haltingly. When asked off camera by his daughter Angela Ho, a member of the rival two families, if he had been pressured, Mr. Ho responded: "Yes ... under pressure." He added: "The whole thing is in a mess."Mr. Ho also referred to the other families’ actions as "robbery" and said "I know nothing of it, and then I find out I signed something they forced me to sign."At one point, Mr. Ho appeared to be enjoying the drama and quipped to Mr. Oldham: "I must congratulate you. In just a few days, you manage to blow up this thing so quickly." Mr. Oldham laughed and replied: "Well, it will be reflected in my bill."
