Five men, including two Malaysian Chinese arrested during Sunday's Independent Commission Against Corruption raids at Sha Tin, were yesterday charged with illegal gambling. Appearing at Western Court, Malaysian nationals Yong Seng Chen, 39, and Liew Siew Cheong, 38, denied illegal bookmaking from a Sha Tin flat. Local men Chan Hung-yip, 30, Kam Tat-fai, 27, and Paul Ching Fuk-hung, 36, were arrested in Mongkok on the same day. They also denied the charges. The men were bailed and ordered to appear again on May 16 after magistrate Peter White refused to hold them in custody for up to two months. They were also ordered to surrender their travel documents. The first court action to result from Sunday's dramatic ICAC raids came as the Hong Kong Jockey Club also took action to 'maintain the confidence of the public in the conduct of racing'. Two trainers - Tony Chan Pak-hung and Stephen Leung Sik-lun - and five jockeys - Andy Ko Chun-ho, Simon Yim Hin-keung, Vickie Choi Chun-wai, Raymond Tam Shu-man and Peter Ho Wah-lun - had their licences suspended until April 2. Trainers Chan and Leung, among those arrested on Sunday, had earlier been released on bail by the ICAC. Jockeys Yim and Ko were also freed, unconditionally, while apprentice riders Ho, Tam and Choi were released on ICAC bail. Jockey Club race caller Terry Spargo, television form expert Jenny Chapman and audiovisual department employee Kwok Chi-chuen were also freed on bail yesterday. The trio were also suspended from duties by the Jockey Club until further notice. Jockey Club chief executive Lawrence Wong Chi-kwong said: 'The most important thing of all is to show to the Hong Kong public, and people outside, the determination of the Board of Stewards and the whole of the Jockey Club, to enhance racing's integrity and to protect the public interest.' Assistant trainer Francis Liu Kin-wai will take over Chan's stable while the experienced Li Lap-ai will today be reissued with an assistant trainer's licence to take over the running of Leung's yard. However, Leung's solicitor, Jonathan Midgley, said he would be 'discussing' an appeal against the club suspension. Horses have been banned from being transferred from these yards until further notice. The club also acted swiftly to abolish races reserved for local riders from this Saturday's prestigious Gold Cup meeting until the end of the season. Sources say it was scrutiny of these races, first by the club's own security department and then by the ICAC, which led to Sunday's raid at Sha Tin racecourse.
