The defendant's bail application was heard at Fanling Court


A Filipino accused of rape has been refused bail by a magistrate in Fan Ling Court despite offering to put up $12,000 for his temporary freedom.

The accused, Mark Angelo Roxas, appeared on Friday, Feb 14, before Magistrate Wong Kwok-fai to apply for bail.
His counsel said Roxas was raising his bail offer to $12,000 and promised not to leave Hong Kong, but was still unsuccessful.

The prosecution vigorously opposed the application, citing the seriousness of the offense.

No details of the case or personal information about the accused were read in court, as Wong stopped the defense lawyer from giving a background of the case.

Roxas was initially charged with rape in Kowloon Court a week earlier and was not granted bail. His appearance in Fan Ling Court was to allow him his right to a bail review.

Wong told Roxas he could go back to Kowloon Court on Feb 21 for his next bail review.

Fresh cases, urgent matters and hearings are being rotated among Hong Kong’s seven magistracies as the Judiciary has generally adjourned all other cases in line with government measures to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus. – Vir B. Lumicao
