Chef-turned-author claims Chinese official warned about publishing Tsang book.
A former chef for China's Chief Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen is publishing a book on his work at Tsang's official residence.
At a ceremony to mark the release of Yu Yin-ping's book 'My Shocking 303 Days' the author claimed that a senior official had contacted the book's original publisher to warn about the possible legal consequences of publishing details of Tsang's private life. The publisher called off the deal as a result, according to Yu.
The allegation has been denied by Tsang's press secretary, who refused to comment on whether Tsang would take legal action against any possible libellous content, reported the South China Morning Post.
