The Carson Trial – Day 37

The long running trial of Carson Yeung on five counts of money laundering was interrupted today when Carson was taken ill, complaining of chest pains.

Sharp Daily reports that Carson reported being in discomfort relating to a cardiac condition during the morning of the hearing and was ordered by the judge to see a doctor and return for the afternoon session. However Carson did not return and his representatives said that he was undergoing a full physical check-up at the private Canossa Hospital on the Peak.

Judge Douglas Yau Tak-hong has apparently disclaimed his displeasure at what he says are unnecessary delays in the court case and has told Carson’s legal team that the Birmingham City President must return to court tomorrow unless he is either in a coma or intensive care. The prosecution have also considered changing Carson’s bail conditions.

The case resumes tomorrow at 9:30 am (2;30am BST)

edit 22:00 BST July 11 2013

Oriental Daily’s full report confirms just how angry the judge was – with the headline being that unless Carson was dying he was to appear in court on Friday. The judge has also ordered the defence to confirm how many witnesses are left to call and if Carson will take the stand himself.

    A little harsh by the judge, lets hope he can crawl in tomorrow………

  • Graham Woodward says:

    That judge isn’t happy

  • StaffsBlue says:

    Last throw of a loaded-against-him dice maybe?

    • StaffsBlue says:

      Reminds me of the old joke….

      Judge: I sentence you to 25 years.

      Defendant: But Your Honour…. I don’t have long to live.

      Judge: Well, do as much as you can lad.

  • mark says:

    Lets hope the judge does not suffer a simpler thing. Maybe he feels he already in coma state himself…or he worried he might not get his Christmas shopping done…lol

  • Masaccio says:

    Didn’t a judge make Mubarak appear on a hospital bed?

  • Chris Walker says:

    I get the impression the Judge is as bored with this case and CY as much as we are.
    I also feel he has made his mind up too….
    Hope CY likes Porridge…

    • StaffsBlue says:

      I have all three series, the film and Going Straight if he wants to borrow them. :)

      • Chris Walker says:

        He could do a musical in sing sing….
        either way I doubt if the prisons in Hong Kong are anything like Slade…

  • Art Watson says:

    Desperate stuff by Carson -I think he knows he’s going down.

    Good riddance and lets hope PP goes with him as well.

  • dave mann says:

    are we getting to the end of the case or the end of carson himself, were keep whatching
    this pace.KRO.

  • Barry says:

    Not good if there’s an adjournment. The holdings company seem in no rush to sell the club and as long as this sorry state of affairs continues the more critical our position is likely to get.

  • Carlos says:

    I see an empty canoe on the south china sea ……..

  • SteveC says:

    Carson continues to ‘play the system’.
    Next thing an appeal.
    Am sure the judge is thinking .. ‘what case does this man have ..?’

  • James says:

    More delaying tactics from Carson; man up and take your medicine!

  • StaffsBlue says:

    It’s the way the ‘medicine’ is administered that he’s not keen on. Soap anyone? :)

  • JohnBond says:

    He’s obviously going to go kill himself

    • mark says:

      Why would want to that there too much money at stake……..he hoping for a couple of roll overs… …

  • Mickey07 says:

    It’s a blag Carson is trying it on…..the net is closing in on the bloke and about time too…..

  • Alex T says:

    Al, if he is found guilty, but then submits an appeal, will he still have to give up his directorship? And does this mean that he would have to sell at any price?

    Can you give any insight into how this scenario would work? I cant imagine for one minute it would be straight forward as I dont know how anyone can be forced to sell anything against their will unless in administration. …..

  • Agent McLeish says:

    What a charade by CY. He knows his number is up, only thing to do know is employ the only thing he has learned from football – feign injury.

  • Dave says:

    In a coma or intensive care? A little like the accounts at the moment. If it is a heart condition, maybe Pannu can offer a transplant as he’s so big hearted, he must have heart enough for two? ;)

  • Oldbluenose says:

    Whether C,Y’s, condition is ” real ” or acted out, ?. Either way, it is not looking good for him, !!.

    Whatever the Judges private thoughts are, Let us hope this saga is fast ending for the sake of OUR club, !!!!!!!!.

  • romanblue says:

    this is getting bizarre.i wouldnt be surprised to hear jackie chan has legged in and karate chopped the judge at the back of his neck.

  • tom says:

    all he needs is a bit of the old magic sponge!

  • pedantic pete says:

    Is there any possibility that this judge is biased?

  • mark says:

    Maybe carson can put application to get the judge changed he seems very biased, and uncaring….anyone would have thought he commited a murder……..

    • almajir says:


      I think the judge is getting narked at the delaying tactics. I don’t blame him.

      • Oldbluenose says:

        What are the chances of C,Y, getting this court case adourned, ?.

        i hope not, as we need a conclusion for the sake of our club, !!.

  • bluenose08 says:

    yes lets bring on judge judy she will sort him out Quickly !!!!!

  • Agent McLeish says:

    The judge has actually been very very understanding with the defence what with all the other previous adjuournments. Also the defence has had lots of court time allocated to presenting their comedy witnesses. The judge is simply working to the facts presented to him and what has been happening in court so he has made a judgement call over CYs antics.

  • Quokkasskip says:

    this is the actions of a desperate man. Maybe you will get a final chapter for your book Dan, CY being found guilty!!!

  • mark says:

    Again do we have prove that he does not have heart condition….. This will obviously be verfied by doctors…….. So why would he fake this??? The physical strains and pressure would easyly cause this condition. I am no doctor, but I have two community nurses as sisters….

    • Carlos says:

      Is your surname Pannu?

    • almajir says:

      Mark, when asked to name his doctor in court Carson could not.

      • TiltonArmy says:

        Yeah cause anyone having a suspected heart attack would be in a tad confusion state as it does effect the brain?? so naming a doctor that just treated you while in the middle of a stroke would hypothetically hard?

  • Blue Nose Gaz says:

    comment edited – you can’t use words like that about Pannu or Carson as they haven’t been convicted of anything.

  • ChrisB10 says:

    Could a tactical delay to any court decision have anything to do with timing of final parachute payment?

  • StaffsBlue says:

    I’ve remained partial from the start, willing to accept whatever decision the judge makes. But I have to say, it’s looking pretty black for old Carson now. No wonder he’s feeling ill.

  • Alex T says:

    Has Carson been watching re-runs of Fawlty Towers?? Old war wound back you see! ;)

    I would say you couldnt make it up, but John Cleese already did and this is just as farcical!

    Carson, you truly are the (Chinese) re-incarnate of Basil Fawlty…. with a dash of Del Boy added for extra dodgyness

  • Pete says:

    Just speaking hypathatically here- would it be a bad thing for Blues if Yeung did become no-more and had a fatal heart attack? What would it mean for the club?

  • Poppa999 says:

    Worse still, what happens if he get off and is back here by Christmas?

  • andy says:

    If Carson is found guilty, does that mean the club is then sold straight away?

  • TiltonArmy says:

    I think alot of noses on here are being really harsh! as much as my displeasure of what Carson as done to our club I would never wish any harm to the guy
    If he has a heart condition then have a bit of bloody respect IT IS A LIFE THREATENING CONDITION!
    Appalling behavior IMHO!

    • mark says:

      here, here

    • Pete says:

      I am not wishing it on him. I am genuine in asking what would our situation be if something did happen to him, which if the reports are genuine then there a much higher posibility. It was a serious questiion, as I am not sure what our position would be as clearly the trial would cease.

  • mark says:

    tbh judge has not taken any side in this he is simply annoyed with the prosecution and the defense lawyers.

  • mark says:

    http://www.bcfc.com/news/article/20130711-blues-v-hull-city-ticket-details-909347.aspx really pleased with bcfc ticket prices for this friendly……………

  • ray says:

    This seems to me like the legal version of “groundhog day”. Every day more witnesses just like the day before.
