The trial was held at 11 a.m. an hour later than the previous days, but Gao Yunxiang arrived at 10 a.m. accompanied by a lawyer.
At the beginning, the defense lawyer questioned the discrepancy of several testimonies given by the parties. It is reported that after the case, the party successively provided five testimonies to the police, and the defense lawyer pointed out that the first one was different from the third one. However, the parties explained that the first one was written under extreme fear, because the two people are famous in China, especially Gao Yunxiang, and they have the right and power.
The judge criticized the defense lawyer for unfairness
The judge further pointed out that the practice of the defense lawyer may lead to the content appearing on the trial record unable to reflect the full picture of the event, which may have an impact on the verdict of the jury.
After the trial resumed, the defense lawyers accepted the judges advice and watched the video for a significantly longer time.
The following are the court facts (updated on an ongoing basis):
Murugan Thangaraj (hereinafter referred to as debate), a barrister employed by the emperor, cross examined the police records of the female client (hereinafter referred to as female).
Argument: before this, the prosecutor asked you, when you go to the kings room, who do you think will be in it? You answered them from the crew, but this part of the answer is not consistent with your first police record. In the first police record, you said, Wang told you that Gao Yunxiang would come down.
Woman: the first record was made under extreme fear. At that time, I was under great mental pressure and couldnt even speak a complete sentence. The third record is the most accurate state.
Woman: I have answered your question. The first record was made under the condition of extreme fear. Gao He Wang, especially Gao, has a lot of energy and wealth in China. But I am just an ordinary person in Australia. I didnt know what to make at that time. (when the female party answers this question, the word order is slow.)
Argument: before you and Wang Jing went back to the room on the day of the crime, you knew Gao Hui was the only one who appeared in the room, right?
Woman: I dont agree with you. As I said yesterday, as a leading actor, Mr. Gao always has a team around him. No matter during the shooting period or the rest period, he has his assistant and manager around him, including the assistant to the bathroom.
