Judge seeks to consolidate Lew's cases
(02-04 14:36)

A District Court judge has asked the Department of Justice to consider consolidating two cases against a former ally of the Chief Executive, Leung Chun-ying, so they can be tried in the High Court at the same time.
Lew Mon-hung is scheduled to face trial in the High Court on money laundering and fraud charges. He is separately accused in the District Court of perverting the course of justice, having allegedly threatened Leung and the ICAC commissioner in a bid to halt the criminal investigation into the allegations against him.
Lawyers from both sides will state their positions to the District Court on February 21. Lew's bail was renewed. --RTHK
