BARRISTER Anthony Chua was yesterday warned that he was verging on contempt of a disciplinary tribunal which is hearing two complaints of professional misconduct against him. Alan Hoo QC, also warned Mr Chua to stop pestering his secretary for details of the next hearing, which he believed was so Mr Chua could 'arrange a media circus' rather than from a burning desire to turn up at the right place. He said Mr Chua had demonstrated no respect for procedure during the hearings and warned him to refrain from further discourtesy - and sending more faxes to members of the tribunal - until the judgment is delivered next Thursday. Mr Chua, who had protested outside the Supreme Court before the hearing yesterday with a placard around his neck saying he was a victim of injustice, had circulated four faxes since the close of submissions in July, one of which said 'in anticipation of an adverse decision by the tribunal'. Mr Hoo said that because the tribunal was still considering its decision this bordered on contempt of the tribunal. Mr Hoo was due to deliver the tribunal's ruling yesterday, but he, Simon Westbrook and Shum Choi-sang have been unable to complete their review of the hundreds of pages of transcript of the hearing, which has lasted several months. Mr Chua is alleged to have advertised in East Week magazine last year when an interview was published with a picture of him in wig and gown, contrary to the Bar's Code of Conduct. He is also alleged to have failed to respond to the Bar Council's request for comments on the article.
