————————

1. By it’s judgment of 2 November 2010 this court dismissed the applicant’s appeal against his conviction for an offence of indecentassault. The applicant now applies for a certificate pursuant to section 32(2) of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal Ordinance, Cap. 484 certifying a number of points of law, which he says arise from the judgment of this court, as being of great and generalimportance.

2. Unfortunately what the unrepresented applicant has provided as points of law are simply complaints about findings of fact, and particularlyfindings of fact which went to the credibility of witnesses. No point of law, let alone a point of law of great and general importance,has been put forward by the applicant.

3. For that reason the application for a certificate is dismissed.
