A POLICE constable accused of indecently assaulting and falsely imprisoning a nurse claimed that the alleged victim had invented her claims. Chan Wing-yiu, 28, of the Special Duty Squad, New Territories South, told South Kowloon Court yesterday that he was introduced to the 23-year-old nurse at a karaoke club on the night of the alleged attack. The nurse has told the court that Chan fondled her breast and forced her to touch his naked lower body with her face. She also claimed she was imprisoned in a booth. Chan, suspended from duty since the alleged incident, denies two counts of indecent assault and one of false imprisonment. Chan told the court that he, an inspector, and eight other colleagues went to the A & B Karaoke Singing Club in Yau Ma Tei in the early hours of June 25 after a flat-warming party. A bill from the club showed that Chan and his friends had ordered a total of 72 cans of beer that night. Chan said that he had sung and drank in his own karaoke booth at first. Later, he had been taken by a colleague to another booth and introduced to the nurse. The court heard Chan had chatted and played finger-guessing games with various people, including the nurse, for about 20 minutes. He later returned to his own booth. The nurse passed his booth later and asked for more guessing games, the court heard. The one who lost had to drink a quarter of a can of beer. He said the nurse lost several rounds, and seemed to be having difficulty drinking. She then refused to drink any more. 'I handed the beer to her and said: 'Pay a forfeit quicker, or I'll pour it over you',' Chan told the court. 'But she said to me: 'Let me have a rest first. Policemen are not the most powerful'.' There was then a heated exchange between the two. 'I told her: 'Look at the mirror and see how you look. Your mouth is big but you cannot drink',' Chan told the court. He also called her a 'drunken cat'. When cross-examined, Chan said he did not know that the nurse's boyfriend was also present in the club. He told prosecutor Evelyn Tsang he had no idea why the woman would make up a bogus story. But he said he suspected it arose from the dispute over the games. The hearing continues before magistrate Alan Wright.
