The Sinowood Hearing
Edison Chen’s Hearing
Although Chen agreed to cooperate with the authorities, he refused to return to Hong Kong for hearing. A team of four lawyers and a magistrate were thus flown out toVancouver, Canada for a hearing beginning on 23 February 2009 at taxpayers’ expense. Legislator Ronny Tong questioned the “extravagancy” of this hearing, and suggested there may be an easier and cheaper way to collect Chen’s evidence.
During the hearing, which is governed by Hong Kong law, and is presided over by Supreme Court of British Columbia Justice Elaine Adair, with Hong Kong’s Chief Magistrate Tong Man (唐文) as co-commissioner, Chen confirmed that Cecilia Cheung, Gillian Chung, Bobo Chan and Rachel Ngan were indeed involved. He testified that the photographs, taken from 2001 to 2006, were consensual, and were only shown to the women involved. He professed his “huge shock” at seeing the images on the Internet, citing that he had deleted the images before sending his computer in for repairs in summer of 2006.
Cecilia Cheung’s Reaction
After Chen’s statement to court, Cheung broke silence in the matter on a televised interview on iCable on 27 February. She heavily criticised Chen for shedding crocodile tears, saying that instead of calling to apologise, he had not returned calls and switched off his telephone when the incident came to light last year. She accused him of hypocrisy in a bid to win the public’s forgiveness while hurting others caught up in the scandal. She said that despite the rumours circulating at the time of a rift with her husband and in-laws, they had been most supportive.
Gillian Chung’s Reaction
She reclused herself from public for more than a year following the incident and later apologised for hurting the people around her, especially to her long-time ‘Twins’ partner Choi. During the hiatus, she took classes in many areas which she hoped would serve her professionally. Chung said she had ruled out suicide during the ordeal, fearing that the problems would be passed onto people who cared about her if she died; she said her mother was supportive of her quitting the industry.
Computer technician Sze Ho-chun was convicted on 13 May 2009 of three counts of obtaining access to a computer with dishonest intent, and received a custodial sentence of eight and a half months.
