A taxi driver tried to kill himself by jumping from a roof six days after he was framed by two police officers for stealing a wallet worth $35, a court heard yesterday. Leung Wai-on, 33, said he was depressed about his arrest by constables Li Kin-wah and Cheung Ka-ho on the night of February 2. He was not badly injured but was admitted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for a month, the District Court was told. When questioned by defence lawyer Kevin Egan, Mr Leung admitted he did not follow the hospital doctor's advice to seek psychiatric help after the incident. On February 2, Mr Leung was searched by the two defendants and an unknown officer, prosecutor William Tam said. It was alleged Li found two wallets in Mr Leung's jacket pockets and suspected one of them of being stolen. Mr Tam claimed the two defendants forced Mr Leung to admit either stealing the wallet or possessing a flick knife. Li, 31, and Cheung, 24, deny trying to pervert the course of public justice. The trial continues before Judge Gareth Lugar-Mawson.
