A jaywalker is facing a claim for damages two years after a traffic accident involving a police motorcyclist. Fan Chiu-mui, 31, has been asked to pay the $8,000 cost of repairing the motorcycle and may face a compensation bill of more than $60,000 for the seriously injured police constable. A representative from the Legal Department, Mrs Cheng, told the Small Claims Tribunal the police officer was on leave for a long time and had been paid during that period by the Government. Mrs Cheng applied to adjourn the case so the department could consider whether to proceed with the employee compensation together with the repair costs through civil claims. Adjudicator Tong Po-sun adjourned the case until the legal department had considered its position. Outside court, Ms Fan said she had no money to pay and was tortured almost every day by the case. 'What have I done? I was also the victim,' she said. 'It would have been better if the crash had killed me.' Ms Fan said she was injured in the accident and had to see a doctor regularly. Her husband, Cheung Chi-yin, said they were worried that they would lose their home if the compensation bill was huge. He said his wife was fined $50 by a magistrate in 1994 for jaywalking but they had not expected the police to ask for compensation. The incident happened on November 16, 1993, at about 10.35 pm, when Ms Fan dashed across Stanley Village Road while the pedestrian light was showing red. The policeman crashed into a nearby rail and hit her.
