The Carson Trial – Day 48

Carson Yeung continued to give evidence in his cross-examination as his long running trial continued in the District Court today.

Oriental Daily reports that Carson told the court that he asked people who deposited money into his account to testify but they refused to even answer the phone. He continued by saying that a summons would have been ineffective as they wouldn’t have co-operated.

The report goes on to say that he withdrew large amounts of money from banks to ensure margin calls could be met and that the bank sent two concierges to ensure he would be okay leaving the bank with millions of dollars in cash.

As more reports come online I will update this story.

The trial continues tomorrow morning at 9:30am HK time (1:30am GMT)

    This is hardly proving innocence is it…

  • John says:

    When will this come to a end, this is dragging on to long, I read I’m the paper that carson has 8 weeks to save blues from going into admin. It is worrying times, we are I’m the bottom 3 now

  • StaffsBlue says:

    With each passing day… it appears as though he has no actual proof of his innocence. It’s all heresay. Is there any significance in the fact that most of the people he thought would be witnesses…. aren’t? Are they just scared of being implicated, or is that par for the course over there?

  • DoctorD says:

    It doesn’t look great for him does it?

  • Ken says:

    Irrefutable proven evidence of misdemeanor is required to convict Carson, not merely circumstantial evidence. If the prosection case is based on assumed evidence, then Carson’s defence should be able to rely upon assumed innocence and his being not guilty. It is a pity the plight of Birmingham City FC’s future depends largely upon the outcome of this trial too however.

  • Gary R says:

    If he’s innocent, then those witnesses he wants to call in his defense would also know he’s innocent too…so, if that’s the case, why are they so reluctant to come to his aid? Hmmm, doesn’t take a genius to work that one out.

  • Chris W says:

    I don’t think he is doing himself any favours by taking the stand, so far he has only backed up what the prosecution are saying.
    Who in their right mind walks out of a bank with a million plus in cash, unless you robbed it….
    All he is doing is prolonging the inevitable and dragging BCFC with him.
    KRO+DNM

  • Bluenosesol says:

    CY does not want to sell the club until he has banked the last parachute payment in January. Odds are his destiny will be decided in February. He therefore has a very small window to do the deal with Paladini. My concern is that the deal may come too late to get in the players we need to keep the club up in the January transfer window.

  • BigmanSteve0 says:

    He seems to be treating the HK county court in the same manor as he treats us blues fans as he does the company account books as he does GP…kin bang him up

  • Dino Tiltoni says:

    At the rate this trial (a lawyers’ benefit match) is moving we’ll be going down before he does!

  • zxcv says:

    this one is rubbish tho

  • zxcv says:

    I cant see why the judge would take more than four or five minutes to rule on this case tbh.

    • StaffsBlue says:

      I was thinking the same myself. There are still 7 weeks left of this year… why on earth would it take 2 or 3 months to come to a decision? Beggars belief. Methinks every bugger and his dog wants their wedge out of this case.

      • almajir says:

        staffs

        215+ pieces of prosecution evidence. 75 pieces of defence evidence. Over 15,000 pages of stuff to read through – believe it or not, it has to be all read through properly and it takes time.

    • almajir says:

      Good job you’re not a judge mate ;)

      • StaffsBlue says:

        Judge 100 Years, that’s me. :)

        Tbh, as long as he sells the club, I couldn’t give a monkeys whether he gets off or goes down.

  • Chris says:

    Maybe the reason he is unable to call these people to the stand is because they do not exist….Well apart from suspected triads to wich he would much rather put his on grandmother on the stand than these chappys..
    Who could more than bump him off is they so pleased…..And i am sure he knose this….

    Dan i didn’t relies you took so much flack from other BCFC site regarding your site and views and opinions all i can say is keep up the good work mate…..

  • George says:

    Hard to believe that his two QCs let him be so gormless. He has even cast doubt on his own expert witnesses! Maybe that’s the ploy, he gets off, or a lesser sentence because his common sense was lacking, he did not run his business properly and got into a mess. A standard response from many owners of failed businesses. Look stupid but walk away.

    If a specific transaction(s) is proven to be from a criminal source he has to answer, but have the prosecution come up with one specific transaction that can be traced back to criminal activity?

    So he just carries on giving vague and confusing answers and if it just looks like money laundering I suppose he will get some sort of sentence or fine. But the maximum sentence I think not.

    • StaffsBlue says:

      I think it’s something like the pattern of movement of transactions in and out of his bank accounts that seems to indicate money laundering. As I said, apparently, the onus is on CY to prove it wasn’t.

  • Philly says:

    His defence is as good as our back four.

  • Peter bates says:

    I would love to be a fly on the wall when carson yeung speaks to his council it must be the best comedy show ever the whole trial seems to be a shambles there seems to be no concrete evidence from either side prosecution or defence and the judge needs to keep adjourning because he cant stop laughing I wish my bank would get a couple of concierges and let me walk away with a million quid beggars belief

  • ChrisG says:

    Dan, not sure if you’ve answered this already, but when the judge finally gets round to viewing all the evidence to make a verdict, does he just go through CYs testamony to prove his innocence or the prosecuters evidence as well, I have to say that to me CY just seems to have been very naive & trusted too many people who have now stabbed him in the back

    • almajir says:

      Think about that question for a second – wouldn’t you think it make sense for the judge to go through all the evidence?

  • mark says:

    Look to me carson will probably get a slap on the legs…..when transporting large sums of money security paramount imo……………i am sure there are lots of people who do transaction this way…….

  • Thejudge says:

    I think Carson’s got another trick up his sleeve…
    Maybe he’ll play the ill card.
    Kro and delay no more

  • The Francis Fake says:

    There is an incredible amount of uncertainty about Blues fate at the moment, however, there is absolutely none regarding CY’s.

  • Peter bates says:

    I know he cant speak to council during cross examination but they must advise him his answers to questions put to him border on the ridiculous and he must think the court will see him as an honest person if he was to get off the legal system in hk would be a laughing stock captain mainwaring used to say to corporal jones your getting into the realms of fantasy ring any bells carson

  • Bluepengiun76 says:

    “GOING DOWN,GOING DOWN,GOING DOWN,GOING DOWNNNNNNNNN!!!!”!…obviously I’m referring to Carsen, hopefully not ourselves!. Have to be honest it looks pretty damning for him!.

  • Carlosh says:

    Great new idea for a TV series. Its called noodles and its based in a prison in HK. Peter Fletcher a bald fat top bunk lag takes a new inmate called Carson Gober under his wing as he adapts to life in prison and the battles they have with fellow inmates such as grouty sulivan and prison officer Giani Mckay
    I think Im on to a winner here well it might do better than Killzone ! KRO DNM!!!

  • jazzzy786 says:

    Sounds like his mates are deserting him and hanging him out to dry.
