Citizens' Radio loses appeal bid

A Citizens' Radio attempt to appeal against a court finding that it had breached the Telecommunications Ordinance was struck out yesterday. Citizens' Radio had applied for leave to appeal to the Court of Final Appeal, but the court - Chief Justice Andrew Li Kwok-nang, Mr Justice Patrick Chan Siu-oi and Mr Justice Roberto Ribeiro - denied their application. Lawmaker Leung Kwok-hung promised that the station would go to air again soon.

University of London student Lam Kwan-fai, 22, was placed on a one-year HK$5,000 good-behaviour bond for pushing a woman from behind at a bar in Central during a dispute over queueing for the bathroom. Lam, who returned to Hong Kong during university holidays in March, pleaded not guilty in Eastern Court to assault before Magistrate Douglas Yau Tak-hong. Court documents said Lam pushed the woman into a wall, causing abrasions to her right arm.
