An airline pilot and two directors were among seven people charged yesterday with the murder of a man in Big Wave Bay, near Shek O, on the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival last week. The seven defendants did not enter pleas when they appeared in Eastern Court yesterday. The defendants - 32-year-old Chu Siu-keung; directors Sody Ko King-tat, 48, and Ip Chun-fai, 34; 33-year-old airline pilot David Chan; 34-year-old clerk Wong Sze-ho; 36-year-old merchant Nelson Chow Kai-keung; and 48-year-old electrician Ngan Sun-chi - each face one count of murder. The seven defendants are accused of murdering 36-year-old Leung Chi-wing on Saturday. The prosecutor told the court that identification parades would be held today and tomorrow at the Central police station. More than 20 witnesses would take part in the identification parade, the court heard. Acting Principal Magistrate Bina Chainrai was told that Ngan was arrested at his home on Monday. The magistrate adjourned the case to Friday pending further inquiries, the identification parade and a report of the post-mortem examination. All seven were remanded in police custody.
