J U D G M E N T
1. This is an appeal against conviction by the appellant who was convicted after trial in the North Kowloon Magistrate’s Court of 2offences of Assault occasioning actual bodily harm and Resisting a police officer in the due execution of his duty. He was fined.
2. Before me the Appellant has advanced no good ground of appeal and is unable to point to anything in the Magistrate’s statement offindings which shows that he may have fallen into error.
3. In effect all that the Appellant has said to me is that the learned Magistrate’s verdict upon the evidence before him was no morethan his point of view, and that any body would be bound to take the word of two police officers against that of a poor citizen.
4. There is nothing in this appeal. The learned Magistrate’s findings cannot be faulted and the appeal is therefore dismissed.
