Early yearsEdit

Born in Hong Kong on 1 August 1964,[2] attended the St. Paul's Co-educational College in Hong Kong, and holds a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering and a M.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering from Stanford University and an honorary degree, Doctor of Laws, honoris causa (LL.D.) from University of Western Ontario.[3]

KidnappingEdit

Victor Li was kidnapped in 1996 on his way home after work by notorious gangster "Big Spender" Cheung Tze-keung. His father Li Ka-shing paid a ransom of HK$1 billion, directly to Cheung who had come to Li Ka-shing's house. Victor Li is said to have been released after one night.[4] A report was never filed with Hong Kong police. Instead the case was pursued by Mainland authorities, leading to Big Spender's execution in 1998, an outcome not possible under Hong Kong law. Rumours circulated of a deal between Sir Li and the Mainland.[4]
