Judge Refuses Adjournment in Carson’s Criminal Case

It’s been confirmed that Judge Stanley Chan has refused the application of Carson Yeung to adjourn his criminal trial as reported earlier.

Radio Television Hong Kong have reported that Judge Chan has refused that application and the trial will go ahead as planned next week.

The result will be a bitter blow for Carson who argued he needed more time to raise funds to assemble the legal team he needs and implies that the likelihood of Carson being found not guilty is even less probable.

Carson Yeung faces five charges relating to money laundering and is due to stand trial next Wednesday.

    So the question from me is if Carson wanted a set legal team (which given the circumstances is understandable) then why did he not push harder or sooner to sell BCFC??? By all means point out if I’m wrong but surely this was his best option of raising the kind of finances requiered to cover the cost of his chosen legal team??

      He ma have been but as he only owns 26% it’s not his to sell

    • Murf1968 says:

      Whilst I would like to see him sell up as much as anyone, I would have thought that any funds raised by selling the club that are owed to Carson would immediately be frozen like the rest of his assets have been. I may well be wrong, but maybe he sees this part of his “assets” as untouchable by the authorities as there are other shareholders involved, and it’s not so easy for them to sieze them.

      Delaying tactics. Desperate effort to stall for time.

  • Gary R says:

    Almajir – Thanks for this info…great news!! Do you think this decision will have any bearing on sale of club? e.g the whole Paladini saga, and the waiting around for a bid to be accepted, is it possible that it’s linked to CY attempting to get case adjourned. Now that it’s been refused by Judge, could be that PP/CY are willing to do a deal with Paladini?

  • prewarblue says:

    Could it be Yeung is hoping for a no win ,no pay agreement with Pannu,,,,,or even a win now, pay later agreement ?

  • Mark Y says:

    The quicker this trial is over the better as I am sure that the final verdict wil expedite a resolution to the Blues ownership situation which ever way the result goes. It may be now that as CY knows he cannot defer the trial that he genuinely does need cash from a quick sale to help with legal costs. I am sure this scenario would suit Paladini’s consortium.

  • Euston 9.18 says:

    I see the BLUES have loaned a “STAR” young player from west spam “ROBERT HALL”

    BLUES kept that quiet “ONCE AGAIN”,from the so called people in the know.

    • Northern Exile says:

      A player so talented that he has scored 5 goals for Oxford United and 1 goal against Denmark U19s in his career so far… Probably no better as cover than Asante or Jervis.

      • chris says:

        Jervis was poor against low opposition Braintree and i think Asante is injured, so i don’t think he had much choice plus this kid plays on the left which is what we really need, though i was hoping Hancox would be pushed forward into a winger position, he deserves a chance not poxy five minutes as a sub.

  • Mickey07 says:

    Carson sounds like a desperate man too me…….glad the judge can see through him…

  • Paul Carter - The Voice Of Reason says:

    He is innocent until proven guilty

  • Gary R says:

    My opinion is that if he was ‘innocent’ and I was in the same situation, I would want to get into court and clear my name as soon as possible – the day after my arrest, if possible – yet CY has constantly attempted to deflect the trial and have it adjourned by all the excuses under the sun. It’s the same situation with the court case over his House…how many times has that been adjourned/delayed because of excuses from CY?

    If anything all these delays and appeals just makes him look more suspicious. This latest appeal to be adjourned could back-fire the most on him!

  • Bluemat says:

    A cynical fan would say he was adjourning until after the jan window, where the club could raise funds in order for Carson to call back part of his loans to the club? could he do that? obviously i’m not saying this is certain, its just a guess. KRO!!

  • chris says:

    Bluemat, it is possible, we owe him money and if the club had a surplus i.e. sold players there is no reason why he couldn’t ask for an amount of that surplus towards the debt we owe, depends what is in the paper work if there is any.

  • chris says:

    More Brinkmanship from Carson which seems also the way Pannu is treating the sale of the club and the more the pair of them use these tactics the more i believe Paladini.

  • Let’s just wait and see eh?

  • chris says:

    Read the last few paragraphs on Holding companies, this shows how the FA has allowed our scenario to occur and also how Spurs started the rot by allowing directors to take all the profit out of a club.
    As it says the ‘Fit and Proper’ test is laughable and was undermind by the FA’s own rule changes on director renumeration.

    • Oldbluenose says:

      Chris;, Just read that article,!!. To say ” interesting “, — would be to understate it, The F-A, are gutless, — The premier league are purely money motivated, — Which leaves clubs such as ours totally helpless and at the mercy of anyone that wishes to treat it as a money-making machine, !!!.

      To the best of my limited knowledge, ?. C,Y. has not been guilty of this, but who knows what the next owner can/will do, ?????.

  • Blueboy88 says:

    Carson Yeung was been denied permission to leave Hong Kong to sort out his father’s funeral arrangements , which sort of leads you by the nose where all this is going…

  • Cypriotblue says:

    Do many of you think CY wanted this to happen? We dont even know if he has done it, could be one big set up, who knows. We can be sure he didnt want anything of this to happen, and he has backed us with funds like no other owners. All too quick to forget that, but dont let the facts get in the way of your argument

  • carlos says:

    Carson Yeung is a man of straw.As someone has already posted,if he was sure of his innocence,he would want this sorting asap.Just another excuse to hide behind,just as he has hidden behind his wife and mother re the repossesion of his property.Sully and Gold saw this moron coming a mile off,and the vindictive b’stds fleeced him and foisted him on us because we had the temerity to question their commitment to the club.

  • Cypriotblue says:

    and he put a lot of money into Blues, more than any other owners!!!

    and to say that he is guilty because he asked for an adjournment is, quite simply, quite ridiculous. It is quite usual in these type of trials.

  • James says:

    I’d like to believe the whole innocent until proven guilty theory but the facts are Carson is damaging our club. His past investments are irrelavent; we have no money and are reduced to signing loan players.

    If LC gets stick for the team performances, then the chairman/owner deserves the same when we are in a financial shambles.

    KRO

  • Paul Carter - The Voice Of Reason says:

    It would help our financial situation if the loyal thousands of stayaway fans came to the games

  • Cypriotblue says:

    James. If you had put tens of millions into any investment, would you then say that is irrelevant??? Would be good if people would look at both sides of the coin.

  • James says:

    Paul – 100% agree.

    CB – Appreciate the initial funds to what was the greatest period in our history BUT we are an absolute shambles now.

    Either way I just want what’s best for our club

    KRO

  • Cypriotblue says:

    Me too James. Just think this is kicking carson when he is down. It is a mess, and was of course in no way intentional by CY. Im sure CY would change it given the choice!!!

  • Retired&Weary says:

    I still can’t get my head round the original sale to CY at twice the club’s value at least. The FA rightly or wrongly get stick for their weak fit & proper person test, but what about all the very highly paid advisors, lawyers, accountants, etc. involved in the deal? Was it the usual case of pay me a fat fee & I will tell you what you want to hear? I hope that any repercussions don’t just end up with CY alone.

  • tamuffblue says:

    cypriotblue – just what massive investment has he put in ???? which has not been offset by premier league payments – tv fees – players exodus etc etc – as stated on here before he allegedly paid 80 mil BUT claimed back undisclosed amount from the cockney shysters – I will grant that he was well shafted by the Zigic deal but paying out thousands for has beens and journeymen doesnot constitute massive investment !!!!!!! facts speak and the most glaring fact is out of the last 31 deals 28 have been loans and bosmans !!!!!! – KRO – SOTV – 1875

  • Bluenosesol says:

    CY has been very very bad for our club. However he backed us with his millions and garnered support from others to do like wise. At the end of the day he is probably guilty of an over inflated ego and unbelievable naivety. What he wanted was for BCFC to be successful. When he paid £80m for the club, he was hardly likely to make a quick buck and cut and run. The man is a human being who has gone through hell for the last 12 months because he tried to help our club when no one else was interested. As I say he has been very bad for us, but I pray that he has a happy outcome from his trial and those same machinations also serve to enhance the fortunes of our great club.

    ..and so the judge says ‘game on’.
