Not guilty. This was the verdict in the case against a Filipino software company executive charged with three counts of indecent assault against a 13-year-old fellow passenger during a flight from New Zealand to Hong Kong last December.

Rodolfo Domingo Jr’s acquittal on Apr 23 in West Kowloon Court came after a one-day trial six days earlier.
Magistrate Edward Wong said the prosecution did not have sufficient evidence to nail down Domingo on the allegations of the Hong Kong boy, identified in court only as “X” and a student.

The magistrate cleared the Filipino on all three charges.

Domingo, who had been out on bail but was not allowed to leave Hong Kong since his arrest on Dec 9, 2018, immediately left the courtroom with his private lawyers and friends after the verdict.
The magistrate cited the boy’s own admission in his evidence from New Zealand via an audio-video linkup that he was asleep when the alleged indecent assaults took place, leaving room for doubt.

Domingo and the boy were seated next to each other on an Air New Zealand flight from Auckland to Hong Kong on Dec 8-9 last year. The boy claimed he was awakened three times when the defendant put his hand on his knee, and then on to his private part.
On the third occasion, the boy complained to his parents who were seated nearby, and Domingo was arrested on arrival at Hong Kong International Airport.

The incident allegedly happened as the boy was traveling home with his family during a  school break.
