THE trial of three police constables charged with conspiracy to solicit an $800,000 bribe from a defendant in a drug case was adjourned yesterday to allow time for the Crown to find the defendant, who has jumped bail. Toby Jenkyn-Jones, counsel for one of the policemen, said the missing man - Wong Wing-hung - was well-known to police as a drug trafficker and triad. Deputy Judge Livesey in the District Court granted a one-month adjournment after Senior Crown Counsel Ian McWalters submitted that the prosecution needed more time to ascertain Wong's whereabouts. But counsel for the policemen, Mr Jenkyn-Jones, John Necholas and John McNamara, said the application was unfair. Constables Yeung Chi-chiu, 29, Fu Kam-wing, 25, and Chow Hon-ping, 23, are all attached to the New Territories Region of the force. They are jointly charged by the Independent Commission Against Corruption with having conspired on March 16 to solicit $800,000 from Wong in return for failing to testify truthfully at Wong's trial in the District Court, and with conspiracy to pervert the course of public justice. Yeung and Fu are jointly charged with one count of accepting $50,000 from Wong for the same reason on March 30. The three have pleaded not guilty to all the charges. The court heard a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Wong after he failed to turn up to his own trial on drug charges last week. Fu and Chow are expected to be called as witnesses in Wong's trial. The three defendants had their bail extended until their trial on January 18.
