    now we know why overseas QCs are involved. essentially the government is trying to confuse the issue and countercharge Ken Tsang...deplorable...

    QCs are involved because it costs the government less to fly a QC over in Business and book him into the Conrad, then it would to hire a HK based SC to prosecute the case.
    I never got why they don't have professional prosecutors though.

    The trials against Mr Tsang and the seven police officers will however be held separately. The former will be tried in the Magistrates' Courts, whereas the latter will be tried in the District Court.
    Anyone more knowledgable know why Ken's case will be held in a magistrate court and the cops are in a district court ?

    It's disgraceful that they've taken a year to come to a prosecution. That means these assholes got an extra year salary which they didn't deserve.

    I understand the trial has been postponed until Thursday, because the prosecutors have received new evidence from Tsang.....

    Also (and not related to the new evidence), for this trial he'll actually be taking the stand as a witness.

    Police officers trial:

    Police officers charged with assaulting Ken Tsang object to news footage being used as evidence | South China Morning Post

    "Senior counsel Lawrence Lok Ying-kam, for Wong, said the prosecutors failed to prove the originality of the videos and that they had not been tampered with, thereby asking the court not to admit the footage as evidence."
