A 23-year-old woman was accused of hiding marbles and launchers by Hong Kong police.
Policewoman reading the police notebook during court recess: “I was nervous for the first time in court”
After the conflict between police and civilians in Sheung Wan on July 28 last year, the police intercepted multiple civilians at Yuen Long MTR Station in the early hours of the following day.
Among them, a 23-year-old woman was accused of possession of 30 marbles and homemade launchers. She denied the charge of possession of offensive weapons in public when tried in Tuen Mun Magistrates’ Court on July 13.
During the recess, the defence counsel, Douglas Kwok, found a policewoman’s reading copy of the involved officer’s notebook, and accused her for “studying” to gain an upper hand on the defendants. Kwok asked her if she knew that she could not read any relevant documents during the testimony.
The policewoman first answered “Don’t know”, and later said, “I learned that in the academy, but I am nervous and worry about forgetting the events, and so ‘opened it for another glance’.”
