The Carson Trial – Day 15

Carson Yeung was back in court today for the fifteenth day of his trial on five counts of money laundering in the District Court in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

Early reports from Oriental Daily state that the prosecution tried to introduce new evidence to the case including information regarding cash transactions. However, the defence immediately objected and Judge upheld their objection, disallowing the new documentation.

The case has been adjourned until Friday 7 June, 9:30 am (2:30am BST)

Edit 22:00 June 04

Oriental Daily reports that the defense cross-examination of chief Prosecution witness Roderick Sutton continued. Mr Sutton noted that the defense were correct that he couldn’t state the source of some of the payments into the five accounts, but Mr Sutton countered that some of the cash transactions appeared to be  irregular.

The defense also contended that Mr Sutton was not familiar with the way VIP rooms in Macau Casinos operated; however Mr Sutton confirmed that he had in fact served as a director of two Macau casinos in the past and thus was very familiar with the way they worked.

    My God, !!. This case seems to drag on and On,!!.

    Two thirds through it and it still seems to be going nowhere, ?.

  • Chris Smith says:

    On the other hand we’re two thirds of the way through (citation plox) and seem to have been motoring through it in the past few weeks. So it’ll be over sometime sooner than we thought. I hope.

      Yes,you can see why there is no £ left for transfers with all these side shows in full swing.

      • prewarblue says:

        Be careful how you express your opinion mate……or it will be deleted / censored as well just like mine was

        • almajir says:

          Unfortunately, yes it will.

          You might not like it but one has to be VERY careful what they say – because at the end of the day YOU are legally responsible for what YOU post on here.

          I’m being absolutely, utterly, deadly serious about this.

          • prewarblue says:

            my reply……same as yours …..NO comment …..no names were mentioned …..just expressing my opinion which difers markedly from yours recently

          • almajir says:

            Doesn’t matter.

            If I consider a comment on this site could get me into trouble legally, I WILL remove it, no questions asked whether I agree with the statement or not. My opinion doesn’t come into it.

            May I direct you to the comment policy on this site.

            If you are not happy with that then I must sadly advise you to refrain from commenting.

            That goes for EVERYONE else also.

            100% behind you Dan..No-one is forcing Posters to use the site, so if they do, they abide by your Rules..

          • KeeprightCroydON says:

            prewarblue it’s also worth noting that even if you do not mention you could be in breach of libel and slander laws by implication. Need to be very careful, especially as it’s so easy to fall into the trap when commenting online. Really best to err on the side of caution and refrain from saying anything controversial .

  • TracyKRO says:

    almajir got two questions about this
    1, Is Pannu helping mr yeung in this case or going to court with him
    2, If mr yeung appeals would that go on longer than a couple a months cause it costs money to appeal don’t it.

    • almajir says:


      Both questions have been covered before
      1) no, Pannu is not involved in this case in any way and hasn’t been seen near court with Carson. Mr Pannu is a very junior barrister and Carson needs people with slightly more legal nous and experience.

      2) You are looking at 12 months – 2 years or so if he takes it as far as he can appeal wise. It does cost money and the question would be if he could afford to do so

  • TracyKRO says:

    ok thanks Almajir never saw it before

  • Karsten says:

    at the end of the day Carson is just a happy-go-lucky chap who happened to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Same thing happened to me once when the Police arrested me for simply carrying a TV down Small Heath High Street during the riots. I tried to explain that I just found it on the pavement but the Police would not listen. I was unfairly picked on because of my previous convictions. Keep right on Carson

  • Marky mark says:

    This is an absolute joke, I have discussed more over breakfast than they do in a day !!

    Dan, you need to get your ass back over there and shake em up. Lol

  • Euston 9.18 says:

    Bit of a rant !!

    Is Peter Pan classed as the “acting chairman” if so have the football league looked into his background ??

    End of rant !!

    Fair play to Lee Clark getting some players on board,think he could sell a fridge to an Eskimo,I mean what have the club got going for it,it’s ok for us fans to be asked to play for Blues,most would do it for free.But players from not round here what’s the attraction ??

    Player ask’s Lee..”So boss what’s the future for BIRMINGHAM CITY” ?????

    Lee replies……..

    “Well,the chairman is in HK on a money laundering court case,we have no money for cash transfer’s,parts of the ground “St Andrews” will be closed,due to low attendance’s & your wages,well………….”

    Also been a few years since we had a manager stay after the end of a season.

  • mark says:

    Dan- what happens when 25 days is up, is this when appeals starts??

    • almajir says:


      Nothing happens when the “25 days is up”. That was just an estimated length of time in court it would take. It could easily take longer. It will be finished when all the arguments have been heard and when the judge hands over his verdict. There will be no appeal until then – and that is months away.

  • mark says:

    crikey, as you mentioned both arguments have to be heard, will this come down how long can Carson can keep paying his court costs…… no doubt if we are talking months??

    • almajir says:

      Again, no. It will continue until the Judge makes a ruling.

      Appeals etc are dependent on Carson being able to afford it, should he require them

  • mark says:

    why i ask because counsel are not cheap surely this will cost Carson millions or is this too far fetch Dan??

    • almajir says:

      No, it will cost him millions. And before you ask, no I have no idea where he has got that money from.

      • mark says:

        you got me….nice one Dan……like you Dan I have no legal background, my father always taught me if you don’t ask question you will never know the bloody answer….lol.

      • Chris Smith says:

        Could it be possible he is banking on winning and the other side paying al the costs? If he loses after all the appeals could it force the sale of the club, or at least his shares, on grounds of needing to pay fees and such?

    • Pete says:

      I bet legal fees must cost several hundred thousand pounds in expenses and for consultancy advice for Mr Yeung. I cant imagine where that money could be coming from…..

  • matt says:

    Have i missed something? Why is Carson Yeung in court?

  • matt says:

    Five men who stole £20,000 worth of electrical cable and put hundreds of lives at risk in Lancashire’s Ribble Valley have been jailed.

    The men, all from Birmingham, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal at Burnley Crown Court.

    Alexandru Beligan, 29, was jailed for six years, Mahai Antonala, 28, for four and a half years and Gabriel Predusca, 24, for three years four months.

    Marius Avram, 49, and Alexandru Tudor, 21, received four years and two months.

    You just can’t trust us brummies any more!

  • matt says:

    Just reading about another brummie gang causing problems mate! Thought it might raise a few eyebrows! Not taking the piss but keep up the good work!

    “The defense also contended that Mr Sutton was not familiar with the way VIP rooms in Macau Casinos operated; however Mr Sutton confirmed that he had in fact served as a director of two Macau casinos in the past and thus was very familiar with the way they worked.”

    I hope the defence do a little more homework on the witnesses before cross examining or i fear for our beloved leader.

  • Dave S says:

    hmmm interesting,
    Prosecution trying to “pull a flanker” won’t go well with the judge, creates a little doubt in his mind.
    Smacks a little of desperation, can’t wait for the “coup de gras” from the defence,watch this space.0

  • RUPERT says:

    Carson will be not guilty because the accounts the money went into were belonging to carsen yeung not carson yeung.
    He will be back making offers for Dembele by January!

  • OzzyBlue says:

    Bit draconian to disable comments on the BIH unfair dismissal post, Dan. Why not allow comments but moderate; or are you too busy?

    • almajir says:

      I physically cannot spend my day moderating comments on here.

      • OzzyBlue says:

        Fair enough Dan – you do a grand job for little or no reward and you’re a true Bluenose. No reason why you should leave yourself open to litigation when you are providing a great information service to the club and supporters. KRO

  • James says:

    Why is it draconian OzzyBlue? You could always build your own site from scratch, write around 5 articles a week on our beloved club. Then again…………

  • JohnBond says:

    Robbo signs one year deal

    • Pete says:

      Only jesting with Evesham Blue here, but Eve Blue would have had him flogged for not having signed the contract by Monday and withdrawn the contract. On a serious point Evesham- happy with this signing?
