Eastern Magistrate Stanley Ho Chun-yiu acquitted the defendants with cost and said that the “two police officers’ testimonies are unreasonable and artificial. They made up the facts and tried to cover a lie with another lie. They were not honest and reliable witnesses”. We represented D1 in the case.
