Canto-pop star Nicholas Tse Ting-fung faces an anxious wait after a judge reserved her decision on his appeal against his conviction for switching drivers after an accident. Madame Justice Clare-Marie Beeson, sitting in the Court of First Instance, said after hearing concluding submissions from lawyers during a 45-minute session yesterday that she would hand down the ruling on November 17. Tse and his co-accused, traffic policeman Lau Chi-wai, were found guilty in October last year of conspiring with Shing Kwok-ting to pervert the course of public justice. The entertainer, 22, was ordered to serve 240 hours of community service and the officer, 28, was jailed for six months. Tse, who was absent from the appeal with the court's approval, has since finished his community service order. Lau was released on $10,000 bail. He will be jailed if his appeal fails. The court has heard two defendants, Shing, 34 - a former driver for Tse's record company Emperor Entertainment Group - and the singer's assistant, Chow Chu-fai, falsely claimed that Shing was behind the wheel of Tse's black Ferrari when the car crashed on Cotton Tree Drive on March 23 last year. Defence barristers Cheng Huan SC and James Chandler have argued that there was insufficient evidence to prove there was an agreement between the parties.
