News Summary: Macau gangster to be released

(AP) - MUG SHOT: Wan Kuok-koi, a.k.a. "Broken Tooth Koi ," will leave a Macau prison Saturday, the Macau government. He was convicted of loan sharking, money laundering and being a gang leader in November 1999.

HIGH STAKES: Wan waged a brutal war with rival organized crime gangs for dominance of the lucrative VIP rooms in Macau's casinos. Authorities are warning hotels and casinos to tighten security and plan to keep a close eye on him.

WAN WHO? Wan likely has lost much of his power and influence following Macau's decade-long transformation from a crime-ridden backwater into the world's top gambling market.
