More time for 3 accused to view police video
THE hearing against Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) chief Chee Soon Juan and two others for speaking in public without a permit was adjourned yesterday to give them more time to view a police video of their actions.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Lee Lit Cheng yesterday provided DVD copies of the police recording to Chee, SDP member Gandhi Ambalam and party supporter Yap Keng Ho.
The recording, which was made on two digital video tapes, was screened in the courtroom on Wednesday. It showed the trio speaking in a public space in Yishun on April 22 this year.
Chee and Ambalam yesterday told Judge Eddy Tham in the Subordinate Courts that they were ready to cross-examine new witnesses. But Yap said he wanted more time to view his copy of the video evidence before the trial continued.
Judge Tham adjourned proceedings for a day to give Yap the necessary time to review his DVD, and also to allow DPP Lee to amend a transcript of the recording, which will be given to the defendants today.
The trial continues today.
