A radical lawmaker accused of assaulting Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying told a court on Friday that the city’s leader gave no physical reaction when a glass the lawmaker allegedly threw broke behind him, despite claiming he was shocked by a shattering noise. In the unprecedented trial, in which Leung appeared as a prosecution witness, Wong Yuk-man told Eastern Court that video footage showed Leung “stood as still as a plank” in the Legislative Council chamber while he was allegedly assaulted. “You stood there for a full minute and a half,” Wong, who conducted his own defence, said as he cross-examined Leung for a third and final day. Wong said the chief executive did not turn around to check if there were glass fragments even though he claimed to have been in shock when the glass broke. The 64-year-old lawmaker allegedly threw a glass in the chief executive’s direction on July 3, 2014. It landed behind Leung, who was speaking in a Legco question-and-answer session. Wong has denied one count of common assault. He played several video clips to the court yesterday to back up his cross-examination of the chief executive. I was indeed in shock. This is what would be described in English as ‘freeze’ Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying After seeing footage of himself displaying little movement when the glass broke, Leung paused and chuckled. “I was indeed in shock. This is what would be described in English as ‘freeze’,” he testified in Cantonese. Wong said it defied common sense that the chief executive, while claiming to be in shock, did nothing to protect himself. “I disagree,” Leung said, adding that he felt threatened on the inside. “Can’t read your unpredictable mind,” the lawmaker replied. Wong also cast doubt on Leung’s claim that he feared a second attack after the glass incident, as all lawmakers likely to launch such an assault had been removed from the chamber. But Leung said: “They can dart back within one to two seconds to throw a glass at me.” Wong also asked the chief executive if he remembered an incident in which a red bean bun was thrown at him. Leung said he could not recall this, but brought up the occasion when Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah was hit by an egg. The chief executive said throwing a glass had crossed his and the government’s line. The lawmaker made another reference to Leung’s alleged use of his special privilege at Hong Kong International Airport, where he was recently accused of using his position to get a piece of luggage delivered beyond immigration checkpoints to his daughter, who had already checked in. Leung denies the claim. Wong asked Leung why he had not used his special privilege to “call the police commissioner” about the glass incident. Magistrate Chu Chung-keung said that whether Leung resorted to special privilege “was another matter”, but he allowed the question. “No,” Leung replied. Hours later police arranged for new monitors and wires to be fitted in court after the chief executive complained of the poor quality of the video system. Wong asked him to identify personnel in some of the footage, including his bodyguard. But even with a new monitor, Leung – who told the court he wore contact lenses for presbyopia – said he could not identity the person. Wong retorted that the same security guard was in court and he even he could tell who he was. The trial resumes on Monday.
