William Ding Chun Fong wins appeal

Posted by jtsmyth8 on April 30, 2008

Former teacher William Ding Chun Fong, 36, on Wednesday won his appeal against conviction for molesting two schoolboys.

Four secondary school students accused Ding of molesting them in separate incidents between 2001 and 2005.

Ding denied the accusations and fought the case in an 80-day trial that spanned nine months.

He was found guilty in March last year by District Judge Jasbendar Kaur on three charges involving two boys and sentenced to a year’s jail. Ding was acquitted of six other charges involving the other two boys.

Ding choked back tears as an appeal judge on Wednesday acquitted him of molesting two schoolboys.

On hearing that he had won his appeal against his conviction last year by a lower court, he first appeared stunned. (story)

Temasek appeals Indonesia’s ruling

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 18, 2007

Temasek Holdings has filed an appeal against a ruling by Indonesia’s competition watchdog that said the investment company broke anti-trust laws. Temasek’s managing director of corporate affairs, Ms Myrna Thomas, said in a statement: ‘The case against Temasek is baseless and totally without merit. We’re filing an appeal to demonstrate that there is no basis for the decision and to ensure that Temasek’s legal rights under the laws of Indonesia are respected at all times.’

The appeal was filed with the District Court of Central Jakarta on Tuesday with a ruling expected within 30 days.

Last month, Indonesia’s Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) ruled that Temasek had violated anti-monopoly laws and ordered it to sell its shares in one of the two top Indonesian mobile telcos. (story)
