A jockey confessed to anti-graft investigators that he regretted getting involved in a race-fixing scam in which a mainland businessman was said to have paid out more than $1 million in bribes, a court heard yesterday. Stanley Chin Kin-ming told the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) during a videotaped interview that he was forced by the businessman, known as 'Mr Pak', to fix two races in March and April 1996. Defence barrister Ian Lloyd has submitted that the video is inadmissible as evidence because of the way it was obtained. Judge Peter Line has yet to decide whether to allow it as evidence. Chin said Pak threatened to disclose to the ICAC a video, secretly taped during a Shenzhen meeting where they allegedly discussed race-fixing plans, if he refused to co-operate. 'I was forced to do it. At that time, I was very young and I was not mature. I didn't know how to deal with it at all,' he said. Chin, 25, has denied conspiracy to cheat at gambling in a Sha Tin race on March 30, 1996. He allegedly accepted $1 million from Pak and used it to pay 11 apprentice jockeys for them not to finish in the top three. He has also pleaded not guilty to 12 charges of offering an advantage involving five apprentice jockeys who were said to have received between $30,000 and $200,000. In part of the ICAC video played in the District Court yesterday, Chin told two ICAC officers he had not received any personal gain from the rigging. 'I was very scared. I had not thought of winning any money. I just wanted to settle the matter with the people on the mainland,' Chin said. He said he had placed bets on the March 30 race and won about $200,000, which he distributed among the jockeys who participated in the fixing. Chin said Pak forced him to fix another race on April 14, 1996, but apprentice jockey Ho Wah-lun dealt with most of the other jockeys. Chin and his girlfriend, Denise Yeung Ka-yee, 28, have denied a joint conspiracy charge relating to another Sha Tin race on January 27, 1996. The trial continues today.
