A MAINLANDER who came to Hong Kong to retrieve his late father's legacy but ended up being accused of attempted rape, had his name cleared by the High Court yesterday. A jury trying Leung Yuet-nang, 56, found him not guilty of attempted rape and he was immediately acquitted and discharged. Mr Leung, represented by Andrew Raffell, had pleaded not guilty to the offence, claiming the 59-year-old woman had fabricated the allegation against him to avoid repaying him a loan. During the trial, the court was told Mr Leung came to Hong Kong to handle the probate regarding his father who died in 1988. He lived in the New Territories village where the woman was residing. It was the Crown's case that in the afternoon of September 22, last year, while she was asleep at home with a headache, Mr Leung entered through the unlocked door, jumped onto her and tried to rape her but failed. According to her, because she felt so ashamed, she did not tell anyone until she saw Mr Leung again two days later, which triggered off her anger. Mr Leung, in his defence, denied the attack, saying the woman knew he was to inherit $300,000 to $400,000 and wanted to borrow $20,000 from him. He only lent her $3,000 but she later refused to repay him, threatening to accuse him of rape if he insisted, he told the court.
