The prosecution said Villanueva, a Hong Kong resident, came to Hong Kong in 1995 and works as a cleaner. He lives with his wife and their teenage son and daughter. His wife and daughter were at the hearing.

The prosecutor asked for a four-week adjournment to prepare the case bundle for the transfer to the District Court. She also opposed the defendant’s application for bail because of his previous convictions.


The prosecutor said the last time Villanueva was convicted of the same offense was in January 2017, when he was jailed for a month.

The defendant broke into tears as Chainrai told him his bail application was refused and that his case was adjourned until Jan 14 for transfer to the District Court. – Vir B. Lumicao
