A MOTORCYCLE owner is considering taking his fight to not pay for a vehicle licence to the Court of Final Appeal. Tony Lee Kin-pong argues there is no need for him to have a licence because he does not use the motorbike. He failed in an appeal at the Court of First Instance yesterday against a conviction for failing to display a licence. Mr Lee told the judge that as he did not turn the engine on, the vehicle was just like a pram or a pushcart. He said he should not have to pay money to the Government simply because he owns the property. Mr Lee, who was not represented by a lawyer, claimed his human rights had been breached. He said that demands made for payment of the $600 fine for the offence, before his appeal had been heard, amounted to a perversion of the course of justice. Mr Lee asked the judge whether he would be prosecuted for driving without a licence if his car broke down and he pushed it along the road. But his appeal was dismissed by Mr Justice Pang Kin-kee. The judge said Mr Lee had put forward his arguments strongly. But his motorcycle had been parked in a public road and therefore required a licence. Mr Lee protested that he wanted a further appeal and it is now open to him to seek special leave for a hearing before the Court of Final Appeal. He was convicted at Tsuen Wan Court on July 7 and ordered to pay the $600 fine as well as $600 costs.
