A BUS driver accused of raping an 18-year-old secretary at his flat has been acquitted by a High Court jury. Mr Chan Chung-hay, 33, had denied the charge and said the woman consented. He was defended by Mr Andrew Macrae during the four-day trial before Mr Justice Keith and the jury. The secretary claimed that she was raped by Mr Chan in August 1991 after going to his flat in Fanling, before a dinner date. The woman had met him previously but had never been out with him alone, the court heard. Mr Chan invited the woman out for dinner and she agreed to meet him at his flat, where she watched television while he bathed. He came out after his bath dressed in shorts and sat beside her, the court heard. He then allegedly grabbed her even though she struggled. It was alleged Mr Chan carried her to his bed despite her continued resistance and had intercourse with her.
