Carson Bail Application Hearing Set

It has been confirmed in Hong Kong today that Carson Yeung has applied for bail pending his appeal hearing and that the application will be heard on Thursday, August 21.

The application, which will be heard in the Court of Appeal in Admiralty, Hong Kong on August 21 is scheduled to take two hours. Carson will find out if he will be allowed out of prison on bail conditions pending his appeal which is due to take place in the early part of 2015.

Carson was convicted on five counts of money laundering in March of this year and was sentenced to six years imprisonment. The largest shareholder in Birmingham International Holdings has filed an appeal against the conviction but no date has yet been set for the hearing nor has his legal team been confirmed.

As I understand it, if Carson is allowed out on bail it is some indicator that his pending appeal could be successful; however, should his application be refused it would potentially indicate that the justice system do not believe he stands a chance in the Appeal Courts. In either way it wouldn’t affect the operations of Birmingham International Holdings as Carson holds no official role within the company; he would be barred from traveling abroad much as he was during the bail period between arrest and conviction and he would still be considered a convicted money launderer until if and when his conviction is overturned.

    Can’t see him getting bail or winning the appeal. He still seems to be running BIHL by proxy though.

      But I agree with the fact the last three years they have failed at every level.

  • Oldbluenose says:

    In light of this latest injury to our defence, It was as well that L,C. bought Davis, as it will help fill in the gap in our defence with one of the others, without weakening the side further, ?.

    If he wins his appeal he is back to where he was before his arrest except without the money
