  1. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/afp/20080304/tts-...ff-7d7070a.html TOKYO (AFP) - - A Japanese pin-up model says that her big breasts have not only boosted her career -- they also helped her overturn a court verdict. ADVERTISEMENT The bikini model, who goes by her professional name Serena Kozakura, was cleared after a court decided she was too well-endowed to squeeze into a room through a hole, as she had been found guilty of earlier. "I used to hate my body so much," Kozakura, who has appeared in product commercials on television, told the private Asahi network in an interview aired Tuesday. "But it was my breasts" that won in court, she said. The case was splashed through the Japanese media on Tuesday, with the Asahi network even inviting her to demonstrate how she could not fit through the opening. Kozakura, 38, was convicted last year of property destruction after a man said she kicked in the wooden door of his room and crawled inside, apparently because he was with another woman. Kozakura had said the man made the hole himself. In her appeal, the defence counsel held up a plate showing the size of the hole and said that she could not squeeze through with her 110-centimetre (44-inch) bust. "The judges were very good-mannered as they showed no expressions on their faces. I guess they're well-trained," Kozakura said. Tokyo High Court presiding judge Kunio Harada agreed and threw out the guilty verdict on Monday, saying there was reasonable doubt over the man's account.

    High Court Prank Calls

    I do not know if this is a new trick. This morning received a call, a chinese speaking lady identified herself as a staff from Spore High Court requesting me to attend a court case on nov.....2007. She explained the nature of the case..... This man .... .... .... (accused) was arrested on July 07 and the police found my details in his book and therefore im implicated in this case. And that i need to prove my innocent. WHAT RUBBISH!. I followed to ask who is the IO of the case. She mentioned a CID man Yo Kee Chong is incharge. Immediately , i requested to speak to him. Soon after, this CID Yo called and again speaks in Chinese. When i requested him to speak in English, he asked me " is it important to speak in English" . Asked of his rank, again rebutted me again. I couldn't take his nonsense, i ask him to hang up the phone unless he speaks in English. He hanged up. His colleage called and refer to the case and again, tried to threaten me not to speak in harsh manner to him. I shouted at him to hang up befor he get into sxxt! He challenged me to call back a number..... I told him to stop their nonsense.Told me i was an ex CID and i will proceed to trace them. Then he shouted back... Good.. you are also CID... and then the phone went silent. He refused to talk, paused for a while , i shoot #@+#@#@#@*** to his ear and hung up. Bloody stupid trick. Unfortunately, i m a gd target. Badness.. If im involved in any case, wouldnt CID had called me much earlier instead of immediate summon to court. SHIOW ! Any investigation would have conducted by then, not now. Any way, i duno what they are up to. May be to catch fearful victim to pay up some fines and likewise.

    Court's verdict on Regan Lee

    source: http://newpaper.asia1.com.sg/news/story/0,...,145940,00.html? THE power of the law had little effect on the power of their grief. The man who caused their daughter's death was punished by the courts yesterday, but it was clear they were in anguish even after two years. Regan Lee Da Wen, 26, was sentenced to seven months' jail and banned from driving for 10 years. He pleaded guilty to causing car sales consultant Angelia He Xueli's death by a rash act while test-driving a Mazda MX-5 sports car along Upper Paya Lebar Road on 29 Oct, 2005. Miss He, 22, was in the front passenger seat. Outside the courtroom yesterday, after the verdict was read, Ms He's aunt confronted Lee's family, who had attended the sentencing. 'Only seven months! A young woman died! Do you think that's fair?' she shouted at them. The aunt, who was in tears, had to be calmed down by other family members. ONLY CHILD Ms He was the only child of Mr Ho Tuck Fatt, a former odd-job labourer, and his wife, Madam Loh Siaw Keow, a housewife. In court yesterday, even before the hearing began, Madam Loh began to cry, while Mr Ho sat with his jaw clenched. Later, in an interview with The New Paper outside the couple's flat, the aunt – Madam Loh's older sister - said: 'Since the incident, we've been very worried for my sister, and we call her everyday. '(Ms He) was their only daughter. They worked so hard to raise her, and then she was gone.' Mrs Ho has been unable to work since her daughter's death. When The New Paper visited the couple's Yishun flat last night, Mr Ho, 50, said: 'I just went to Mandai to see her.' 'I updated her on the case, like I often do.' He said he took along a bunch of lilies which are Ms He's favourite flowers. The couple visit their daughter's niche at Mandai Crematorium at least twice a week to offer prayers and make offerings. Mr Ho said that his daughter's pictures are displayed all over the flat. He said: 'He has taken her away from us. What's left are only photos and belongings and through these we can only hope to feel her existence around us.' Earlier, in a statement read out in court, Ms He's father, 50, spoke of the couple's agony. He said: 'Sometimes when I see a young girl outside, it would remind me of my late daughter.' Since they had to attend court regularly, Mr Ho quit his job. He is currently unemployed. He said in the statement: 'I do not know who will look after us after (her) death... Whatever the sentence, it cannot change the fact that (my daughter) is already gone forever. 'I am still angry with the driver for causing (her) death. Ms He's second death anniversary falls on Monday.' According to court documents, Lee and two friends went to the Village Credit showroom at Upper Bukit Timah, where Ms He worked, that fateful afternoon two years ago. As the cars they wanted to test-drive were unavailable there, arrangements were made for them to view and test-drive the cars at the MacPherson showroom. Lee was test-driving the car along Upper Paya Lebar Road, with Ms He in the front passenger seat, when the accident occurred at about 5.55pm. SPEEDING Eyewitnesses said that Lee was driving at or above 90 kmh at the time. The speed limit on that stretch of road is 50 kmh. He was driving the centre lane of the three-lane road when he lost control of the car while negotiating a left bend at high speed. The car mounted the central island of the road, went onto the opposite side of the road, and collided head-on into an oncoming BMW. It then flipped over and upwards, and landed on the roof of a motor van. Ms He suffered a broken neck. She was rushed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where she died an hour after the accident. The driver and four other passengers in the BMW all sustained injuries and were sent to Changi General Hospital for treatment. Investigations showed that at the time of the accident, the weather was fine, and road surface was dry, and visibility was clear. The traffic on that stretch of road was also light. Checks showed that no defects were found in the MX-5's brake, steering and other mechanical systems. Lee had originally faced a more serious charge of causing Ms He's death by dangerous driving. But that was reduced to causing the death by a rash act, to which he pleaded guilty. The case caused a furore online in April this year, when Lee put up an Internet posting on a car website forum, saying he was shopping for a new car and asking for advice between two high-performance vehicles. The posts attracted thousands of comments, most of which expressed anger and outrage. The debate was also picked up by the media. Lee's licence was suspended by the Traffic Police after he was charged in court in April. In sentencing Lee, District Judge Eddy Tham said that the 'inescapable fact' was that Lee had driven in a rash manner and at an 'excessive speed', despite being unfamiliar with the vehicle and the route. And this, ultimately, was the reason he lost control of the vehicle and caused this tragedy. Lee could have been jailed up to two years, fined, or both.

    Taken to Court

    Chance at the following comments on Santa Fe from www.carsurvey.org. Do you know about this court case and whether it is indeed true? "Poor Fuel Economy? Yup that is absolutely PAR for the course. Hyundai has done three things. 1) Overstated the horsepower by 10% 2) Calibrated the speedometer to be 10% higher 3) Overstated the fuel economy by 10% The first point is a known point and was taken to court. The second is coming out just now. The third has had no legal actions, but EVERYONE I talk to mentions how bad on gas Hyundai Vehicles are. One note though.. Fuel Economy and Safety ratings are inversely related. The Santa Fe is bad on gas, but considered much safer than many other vehicles. -I should know I was rear-ended two weeks ago. As far as the Santa Fe having little storage. Don't totally agree. It is by no means huge. But it is one of the bigger ones in the class (SMALL SUV)." Regards,
