FOUR men alleged to have attacked a man who later died from his injuries were acquitted of murder by a High Court jury yesterday. Mr Justice Ryan directed the jury to acquit midway through the trial. He said evidence supporting the identification of the suspects was poor. Because identification was made in difficult circumstances other evidence was needed to support it. The victim, 23-year-old Mr Fung Wing-tak, had been kicked and beaten by about 10 men during a row in Canton Road on April 11 last year, the jury was told. Senior Crown counsel, Mr Wayne Moultrie, called evidence to show that Mr Fung and his girlfriend were driving to see a film in Mongkok. Some friends were following in another car. Mr Fung was looking for a parking space when a goods van behind sounded its horn. Mr Fung went to look at the rear of his car; two or three men got out of the van and an argument started. Another four men leapt out and attacked Mr Fung. A friend in the following car, Mr Ng Kai-hong, tried to help but was kicked unconscious. Acquitted of murder and wounding with intent were Hui Chi-hung, 24, Yip Yuet-ming, 28, Lam Chi-hing, 28, and Hui Kwok-ho, 24.
