Edison Chen refuses to testify

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 24, 2009

This is still dragging on? Ho Chun Sze (China) was charged once the scandal broke for illegally accessing Chen’s computer with the intent to distribute. Edison Chen is refusing to testify to protect the women already affected by the scandal. The judge in British Columbia, Canada raised the issue and pressed Chen for his reasoning. No legal threats or punishments were used to coerce Chen into testifying however its still within the judge’s power to charge Chen with contempt.

“Police say the images were illegally copied from the 28-year-old star’s computer.

Chen testified that after he saw the pictures circulating on the Internet with file names that matched those on his computer, he concluded the pictures were stolen. He originally thought the photos were taken from a stolen computer but then came to believe they were illegally downloaded while his computers were being serviced at a Hong Kong computer store.” (link)

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)
