A man accused of being a gunman hired to shoot media tycoon Jimmy Lai Chee-ying and former Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee Chu-ming said he did not know who Mr Lai was and had never seen the photo of him found in his wallet. Huang Nanhua, 50, was answering questions put to him by prosecutor Peter Chapman yesterday in the Court of First Instance. 'Do you often keep photos of strange men in your wallet?' Mr Chapman asked. Huang replied that the only photos he kept in his wallet were those of Mao Zedong , a certain Malaysian figure and his wife. He had not seen the photo of Mr Lai before and did not know who he was despite visiting Hong Kong regularly from Shenzhen. Mr Lai is publisher of the Chinese-language Apple Daily newspaper. Huang also denied having seen papers, found in his bag, that contained information about the men. Huang has pleaded not guilty to carrying a firearm with the intent to commit offences including shooting with intent and kidnapping. Police say they intercepted Huang at a roadblock in Dundas Street, Mong Kok, on August 14 and found a pistol with five bullets, information about Mr Lai and Mr Lee, and HK$20,000. Huang denied all knowledge of the gun in his bag. A friend, Ho Wai-kam, stuffed a package into his bag with instructions to deliver it to an 'Ah Wai', who would call, Huang said, adding that Ho told him the contents were electronic parts. Ho has pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of possessing a firearm. Huang has accused police of forcing four statements out of him by covering his head with a bag, binding his hands, kicking and punching him, and forcing water into his mouth. When Mr Chapman asked why photos of his body showed only two marks on his chest, a scratch on his back and marks on his knee, Huang replied: 'Maybe [the injuries] were not visible to the naked eye or did not appear right away.' Huang also said that when he was taken to Queen Mary Hospital, officers told the doctor to leave out certain details of their examination, which is why they failed to mention marks on his body. The trial continues before Deputy Judge Peter Line.
