LAS VEGAS (AP) - The man who headed Las Vegas Sands Corp. for almost 14 years has given blistering testimony against his former boss, Sheldon Adelson.

Williams Weidner took the stand Wednesday in Las Vegas, just days after Adelson testified in a $328 million breach-of-contract case brought by Hong Kong businessman Richard Suen.

Weidner said the Sands CEO had treated him poorly, sought to silence him, and nearly driven his own company to bankruptcy.

Businessman Richard Suen claims he helped the company enter the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau and Sands stiffed him for his work. Sands says Suen didn't actually proffer any help.

Weidner signed a 2001 letter offering Suen $5 million plus 2 percent of the profits from Macau.
