Trial delay

Start of the corruption trial against Ng Lap Seng delayed by 30 days

The beginning of the corruption trial against local businessman Ng Lap Seng will be delayed by 30 days, news agency Associated Press reported.
Initially scheduled to start today, the trial against the Macau businessman is now expected to start in late June, with federal Judge Vernon Broderick having agreed to a request by the Prosecution to delay the start of the trial, set to take place in New York City.
According to the report, Mr. Ng’s defence lawyer considered that the extension would undermine his client’s right to a speedy trial, but on the other hand believed it would give him time to contest a decision that newly discovered classified materials related to the case were not required to be turned over to the defence.
