British banker set for H.K. trial after hinting not guilty plea
Yahoo News - over 1 year
The British banker accused of murdering two Indonesian women, whose mutilated bodies were found in his upscale Hong Kong apartment, on Friday indicated he may plead not guilty, setting the stage for a months-long trial. Rurik Jutting, a 30-year-old former Merrill Lynch Bank of America employee, did not officially lodge a plea at the magistrates' court hearing, which took place after the case was adjourned last month following a prosecution request for more time. "If the person wanted to plead guilty, it's the first opportunity he could do so, then the case is sent straight for sentencing in the High Court," Jutting's lawyer Michael Vidler told reporters outside the courtroom. Simon Young, the associate dean for Hong Kong University's Faculty of Law, said the handling of Jutting's plea gave his legal team more time to discuss strategy.

U.S. authorities have charged Snowden with theft of U.S. government property, unauthorized communication of national defence information and wilful communication of classified communications intelligence to an unauthorized person, with the latter two charges coming under the U.S. Espionage Act. The United States and Hong Kong signed an extradition treaty which ca ...
