”Justice Geoff Flatman said Zhan Yu Zhong, 45, offered the policeman – who posed as a hitman – a $1000 casino chip to secure his services. That was followed later by $200 in cash.
”…Justice Flatman fixed a three-and-a-half-year minimum term for Zhong, who he said had shown naivety and some ambivalence in dealing with the undercover officers.
”…Zhong had discussed various methods for the disposal of his estranged de facto wife, Rong Maio, 35, Justice Flatman said.
