Sister of murdered interpreter speaks out

THE sister of the Chinese interpreter, whose mysterious murder has gripped Nelson Mandela Bay, has broken her silence for the first time, describing the turmoil she and her family have been dealing with since he was brutally killed in October last year.

Jing Yun, the younger sister of Zhi Duan Huang, 37, said she and her family were still battling to come to terms with her brother’s death. Huang is believed to have been decapitated, allegedly with a sword, at the Jade Gardens restaurant at the Dolphins Leap centre in Humewood on October 5.

A headless body matching Huang’s description was found buried next to the N2 near the Swartkops River Mouth 12 days later and DNA results later confirmed that it was him.

While still hesitant to discuss the details surrounding her brother’s death, Yun said she was concerned about the lack of information from the police regarding the release of the suspects in the case.

She also opened up about her regret for allowing him to go to the restaurant on the night he was killed.

Four men had been arrested and held in connection with the gruesome murder but the charges against them have since been withdrawn by the state.
