「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

做 Jury 陪審團 ﹑Juror 陪審員

做 Jury 陪審團 ﹑Juror 陪審員



城中熱話除了奧斯卡金像獎﹐【無間道風雲】得獎﹐引起中外兩片的比較外﹐法庭也很熱鬧﹐徐步高的事件﹐開死因庭﹐裁判官是華人﹐另外選了三男兩女的陪審員。法庭還要加開地方給傳媒採訪﹐但為期八個星期﹐我相信不到一星期﹐傳媒就會減少了。


【明報專訊】死因庭今早聆訊涉及警員徐步高的三宗案件,大批記者一早就去到法庭外等候聽審。研訊會一併處理去年尖沙嘴槍擊案、六年前警員梁成恩在石圍角_遭槍殺案及荃灣麗城花園恒生銀行劫殺案。在清晨六時前,已有大批記者在東區裁判法院外等候聽審。


今次聆訊預計會歷時37日,會傳召過百名證人,包括心理學家、軍械鑑證專家,及受傷警員洗家強。尖沙嘴槍擊案發生於去年3月,警員曾國恆及冼家強,在行人隧道內被槍擊,曾國恆中槍殉職,冼家強受傷留院71日,疑兇證實是休班警員徐步高,他用以行兇的槍證實是六年前被槍殺的警員梁成恩的失槍,該把槍亦證實是荃灣麗城花園恒生銀行劫殺案槍殺巴籍護衛的兇槍。


其實今次死因庭是用廣東話而非英語﹐並且在差不多一年後才開庭﹐但香港人仍然大部份都有先入為主的心態﹐黑與白分明﹐已經裁判了徐步高有罪。法援處並且拒絕徐步高母親﹐申請聘請律師代表出庭﹐理由是資產高出申請資格。


陪審員在一年之後可否持平﹐還有在沒有律師代表出庭﹐徐步高的人權是否得到保障呢?


我從沒有被選中過做陪審員﹐各位可有這方面的經歷???

徐步高案死因庭押後研訊
死因裁判官陳碧橋批准代表徐步高家人的律師的申請,將聆訊押後至周五才繼續,以便他們有時間研究案情。大律師葉賜豪就解釋,徐步高的母親到本月才收到法援被拒的消息,所以很遲才與律師聯絡。死因裁判官陳碧橋批准押後申請,但只將研訊押後至星期五。


07-03-01 徐母義務大狀:為公平找真相  

大律師葉賜豪昨日代表徐步高母親張維美出庭,現年31歲的葉賜豪,前日下午才收到律師朋友黃國桐的來電,邀請他代表徐步高家人,參與死因研訊。葉賜豪在庭外接受記者訪問,他表示,當時考慮了個半小時,決定「臨危受命」,葉稱﹕「無想過贏,只想在公平情下,找出真相。」被黃國桐稱讚「有使命感」的葉賜豪,1999年大學法律系畢業,2000年正式執業,是社會民主連線(社民連)常務委員。


Apology: 我是用拼音輸入法寫中文﹐所以有時寫了白字都唔多覺﹐還有有時在改寫時﹐在剪貼過程中﹐屢次重複了都不覺。可惜中文文書系統是沒有校對軟件﹐大家可有何提議? 英文的我儘量在MS-words, debug 所有錯誤﹐才登上blogger, typo error 希望能減低罷。

一般的情況底下,我們都是可以相信現存的法律的。但在矛盾的人生裡面,甚麼是一般、甚麼是非一般,有時也很難說。相信包青天手下也一定有冤魂呢。經驗告訴我,真相永遠就只有當事人才知道的,旁人哪能定奪?

我只試過被傳召上庭作證。收到上庭紙,說要等電話通知何時上庭,但我最後根本沒有收到電話……

好彩政府沒有我本科以後的資料,大抵資料顯示我中英能力不足,難以擔任陪審員吧,一直都好幸運不用出庭做juror... ;P

我只看了【無間道】第一集 和 第三集﹐梁朝偉若果沒有被揭穿是警方臥底﹐在昇降機裡發生的事﹐梁就會被指為殺了警員林家棟的匪徒﹐而劉德華就成了殺匪英雄﹐其實林和劉兩人﹐都是安插在警方的黑社會臥底。

回看徐步高事件﹐在尖沙咀隧道內曾國恆被殺了﹐徐步高也死了﹐剩下受傷了的冼家強。


何其巧合﹐都是三人相遇﹐二死一生還。
【無間道】和 【無間道風雲】獲獎無數﹐
【徐步高事件】之謎可否被打開? 各位庭外陪審員﹐
點睇!!!

快D去我度探龍貓啦~~~ :D

lu said...

haha... carrie is so side-tracking :P

i'm always skeptical about the jury system. they have to make a decision based on the information given. if some important info/evidence is missing, the ending will be changed!

also, how could the witness remember so clearly long after the events have happened? this case is only 1 year, but Leung Sing Yan case was 5 years ago. how could we trust the memories of the living... how do we know if they have not woven stories into their memory and have tricked themselves into thinking that it's real???

and, the surviving policeman was under a traumatic situation, how much of his memory is reliable? how much of what he saw was part of reality and not out of fear?

aiya.. so many questions :P

Carrie said...

Yes, of coz! My chins are so cute that I must share with everyone. Haha.

The essence of Jury is to be judged by peers, which I don't believe we can 100% implement. And I think the legal procedures in common law system somehow confuse lay people. At the end of the day, I guess Jury tend to be affected by legal professionals with better presentation skills.

Once people tell me LLB graduates no needa perform Jury duty. Yet, I can't find such support from the Jury Ordinance. Well, I don't really mind to perform my civil duty.

社會有不同聲音﹐屬正常現象﹐同意各位的執言。奇怪反而民主派﹐成日講人權﹐依家綁手綁腳﹐變了閉聲蟲﹐甚為可惜!


兩天的法庭﹐報導還未入肉﹐八個星期﹐三十多個工作天的死因庭﹐看看傳媒﹐有多少毅力和韌力﹐和可否持平。

xiao zhu said...

"看看傳媒﹐有多少毅力和韌力"

每個法庭都有駐法庭記者睇吓每日有乜料值得報導,佢哋會揸住當日法院所有每個庭嘅審訊資料去睇吓有冇邊單案值得報就入去聽審。所以有冇毅力都會做。

今次呢單案咁特別同哄動,佢哋一定會跟到貼,另外又要睇吓市民嘅反應。當然仲有其他客觀因素,例如當日有更大單嘢發生,咁就擺少D篇幅囉。

可否持平? 大家心裡有數喇。

the inner space said...

法庭消息通常一兩個記者紀錄分給各同業﹐但今次各報社傳媒﹐另派幾TEAM 人去做﹐YES 看大眾反應﹐和期間有冇其他大新聞。


好像今天裁判官延至星期五再開庭。今天唐唐交功課﹐當然是財政預算案行頭喇。我表面冇乜得益﹐要再研究
耐o的!!!

I am not old enough to be a juror but I guess this duty is very time-consuming.

lu said...

space兄的"唉!!! 唉!!!"是因為用不著還是嫌太少,還是...?

要同會計師研究一下。

唉!!! 唉!!!
