An angry hostess drew a High Court judge into a battle of wills yesterday by threatening not to return to court to continue her testimony. Kwok Siu-wan's temper flared when the man she claims duped her out of $750,000 suddenly announced he was too ill to listen to her testimony. When defence lawyer Robert Forrest asked that the case be adjourned to allow the alleged conman to see a doctor, Miss Kwok, 39, announced she too was sick. She told Mr Justice Yeung she would not return to court unless he ordered that the proceedings continue. 'I won't come. I have my human rights. I know I will have a temperature tonight, just as he knows he has a temperature.' She said she was so ill she would be 'unable to walk' the next day. Mr Justice Yeung warned her if she failed to appear, he would send a bailiff to her home. 'You can't just say you don't want to come,' he said. She was testifying at the trial of Leung Chiu-tin, 34, alleged to have charmed 11 women out of more than $3 million. The hostess was working at the Mandarin Palace in Tsim Sha Tsui when she met Leung. On November 17, 1994, he took her to a hotel, where they had sex. Later he told her he wanted to pay her $100,000 a month for a trial period of a year. They went to her bank, where Leung showed her $750,000 was deposited in her account, she said. But she noticed it was made by cheque, and refused to withdraw the cash and give it to him. Prosecutor Anna Lai said Miss Kwok eventually handed over $750,000. Leung denies obtaining property by deception. The trial continues.
