PETALING JAYA: While Datuk Lee Chong Wei was away playing in the Denmark Open, thieves broke into the world badminton No. 1's office in Bandar Puteri Puchong and carted away several computers, including those which contained pre-wedding photos for his marriage next month.

His brother Lee Chong Hoon, 38, director of Chong Wei Binajaya, said the break-in was discovered by an employee at 9am yesterday when she arrived for work at the first floor of the four-storey shoplot.Prized possession: Chong Hoon showing the two badminton racquets that were left behind by the thieves in Chong Wei’s office in Bandar Puteri Puchong.

“The gate grille on the ground floor was cut, the office was forced open and another door inside the office was broken.

“A total of seven I-Mac computers were stolen and the office was in a mess.
“Sadly, one of the stolen computers was loaded with Chong Wei's pre-wedding photos taken last month. It's a good thing we had saved copies elsewhere,” he said, adding that the total losses amounted to about RM30,000.

Chong Hoon said they had just moved into their new office about two months ago and the CCTV and alarm system had not been activated yet.

“Surprisingly, the thieves did not steal the projector and two prized badminton racquets, which are worth RM74,000.

“The racquets were auctioned off two years ago to raise funds for the Japan Tsunami relief but the winning bidder returned the racquets to Chong Wei, saying he was just happy to support the cause,” he said.

Chong Wei's marriage is set for Nov 9 and 10.

“Upon discovering the theft, I called Chong Wei in Denmark and he told me to lodge a police report. He has left it to me to handle the situation,” he said.
