The Carson Trial – Day 13

The trial of Carson Yeung on five counts of money laundering continued today in the District Court with chief prosecution witness Roderick Sutton again in the witness box.

Oriental Daily reports that the Roderick Sutton continued his testimony by refuting the statements in the defence submission stating that there was not enough documentation showing sources of funding and that they had taken information for the submission on Carson’s wealth from Wikipedia, which can be edited by anyone. He also pointed out that Chung Nam Securities had testified that they had chased Carson for money and had threatened him with bankruptcy proceedings, as had already been revealed in the trial.

Sutton continued to refute the defence submission, making observations on the defence arguments about loans granted to Carson, purchase of vehicles and the number of stock accounts that he had.

The trial continues tomorrow at 9:30am (2:30am BST)

      Ths is only the beginning has carson defence will make headway…….more twist and turns, dan pointed out the onus is on his defence. So the defence will start to muddy the water against the prosecution…….like hero meets platoon- battle of wits is that significant………

  • mark says:

      Funny – mark

    • StaffsBlue says:

      12 days to go? I think that may be a tad conservative mark lol. The trial started around 31 days ago and we’re only on Day 13. With the trial estimated to last 25 days, that equates to around 75 days in dog years. =)

  • OzzyBlue says:

    Had to laugh about the defense taking information about their client’s wealth from Wikipedia! Like saying ‘It must be true because I read it in the Daily Mail.’ If that’s the best they can do, I fear for Carson’s liberty.

  • StevieW says:

    I find the use of Wikipedia in a court of law almost laughable. As already said this is just the beginning but if they are going to submit defence evidence sourced from the likes of Wikipedia then this should make for a great Walt Disney sketch.

    • Alex says:

      Is it not the prosecution denying accusations by the defence that THEY (the prosecution) had taken info from wikipedia? That’s how I read it.

      • zxcv says:

        correct.

        • almajir says:

          Actually, zxcv, incorrect.

          Another link for you, with unfortunately another clunky translation, but it makes it clear that the prosecution witness Roderick Sutton criticised the defence expert for relying on wikipedia to calculate the net worth.

    • chudlt says:

      He refuted the defences claim.

  • zxcv says:

    I wonder if the proecution will call Carson to the stand and be allowed to question him, or is it the defence that call him thus allowing for cross examination, as it is in England.

  • John says:

    Never mind all this trial rubbish,of more importance is,if we renew our season tickets,will the club state, that non of the money will line Pannu’s pockets ?

    • almajir says:

      Thanks for your constructive comment John.

      I suggest you send your question to the club directly.

  • asher says:

  • Paulo says:

    Day 13, and all is just as confusing as it has been since CY’s arrest. To be honest, I am following the trial, but am not rushing to any conclusions or venting any frustration nor surprise …not until the fat lady sings.
    Either way, the quote ..’as slippery as a bucket full of eels’, does relate to a certain few people involved in the case.
