Birmingham City Football Club boss Carson Yeung was found guilty by a Hong Kong court Monday of five counts of money laundering in a high-profile trial that cast a spotlight on how the barber-turned-businessman made his fortune.Prosecutors had pointed to what they said were suspicious checkpayments made to Yeung by employees of Macau companies, including a junket operator, which earns commissions from casinos to attract cash-rich gamblers.Delivering his verdict to a packed courtroom after a trial that lasted more than 50 days, District Court Judge Douglas Yau said Yeung had lied about how he made his money and exaggerated the amount of cash generated by his hair salon business and through gambling.Dressed in a dark suit and tie, Yeung appeared calm but looked tired during the court proceedings and did not react when the verdict was read out.
