Notorious crime boss out of prison

Macau crime boss, "Broken Tooth" Koi, was released from prison yesterday after serving nearly 15 years.

He was convicted of loan sharking, money laundering and being a gang leader in November 1999, a month before Portugal handed its long-time colony back to Beijing and the sleepy enclave became a country of modern resorts and a gambling mecca.

He had waged a brutal war against rival gangs for dominance of Macau's lucrative casinos. Authorities have warned hotels and casinos to tighten security and plan to keep a close eye on him.
