sg/wQzX SINGAPORE - A man who was working as a research officer for Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*Star) assaulted an auxiliary police officer who caught him fishing unlawfully at a non-designated spot at Upper Seletar Reservoir. On Monday (Jan 17), Chua Ci Jie, 29, was convicted on four charges - three offences under the Parks and Trees Act and one count of using criminal force against a public servant. In a brief stand-off at border control after arriving on a flight from Warsaw, Mr Poroshenko accused border guards of taking away his passport. In her submissions, Deputy Public Prosecutor Esther Wong said that Chua was illegally fishing at the reservoir when he was caught by Mr David Sativel, an auxiliary police officer who worked for the National Parks Board (NParks) at the time. Yao, who played for the Houston Rockets from 2002-11 and is now president of the Chinese Basketball Association, used stories and humor to deflect challenging questions at a news conference to promote the Beijing Winter Olympics, which open in 18 days. Mr David asked Chua for his particulars and the encounter was recorded on his body-worn camera, the court heard. Mr Poroshenko's return sets up a showdown with President Zelenskiy's government in what critics say is an ill-judged distraction as Ukraine braces for a possible Russian military offensive and seeks the support of its Western allies. Chua knew he had committed an offence but refused to provide the officer with his details, said DPP Wong. The 24-year-old finished with 52, his third successive half-century and seventh in his last 10 matches.

"Instead, he tried to remove himself from the scene and subsequently ran down a nearby slope," she said. Mr Poroshenko, 56, is being investigated for alleged treason linked to the financing of Russian-backed separatist fighters through illegal coal sales in 2014 and 2015., which has announced a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Games, Yao likened sporting and cultural events to the community temple gatherings he went to as a child in Shanghai. Both men tumbled down the slope as Mr David gripped on to Chua's bag to prevent him from getting away, said DPP Wong."After getting up, (Chua) pushed the officer once before making his escape," she added. His party accused Mr Zelenskiy of a reckless attempt to silence political opposition. Chua disputed the account, to which DPP Wong said:"(Chua's) defence is bare denial despite the audio and video footage from the officer's camera showing the officer identifying himself to the accused as an NParks officer and the accused acknowledging but refusing the officer's request for his particulars. I think we need more of this kind of temple gathering." "The accused also denied pushing the officer. Mr Zelenskiy trounced Mr Poroshenko in an election in 2019. Now we need a holistic approach to go forward, not just on the field.

" The court heard that Chua worked as a research officer for A*Star at the time of the incident on Nov 30, 2019. At around 4. "We are not here to protect Poroshenko, but to unite and protect Ukraine," Mr Poroshenko told the crowd, before heading to the Pechersk court in central Kiev for a hearing into his case, as supporters chanted outside the building. The photos appeared to be part of a campaign to respond to international demands that Peng be allowed to talk freely about her situation.45pm, he was near Toilet C at the edge of the reservoir using a rod to cast a fishing line into the water, around 1km away from the nearest designated fishing spot. Mr David and the accused rolled down a slope near Mandai Road, Track 7, and Chua ran away as other officers chased him." Ms Tetiana Sapyan, a spokeswoman for the State Bureau of Investigations (DBR), told a separate briefing that the DBR was apolitical. They caught up with Chua, who eventually stopped 200m away, and asked him for his particulars. “We had a pleasant chat,” he said. However, Ireland, who were missing several players including regular captain Andy Balbirnie because of COVID-19, still had to endure a nervy finish, quickly slipping from 190-4 to 208-8 before Craig Young steered the winning boundary with 31 balls to spare.

Chua initially refused but later provided his NRIC from his wallet. The former president and supporters broke out in song after the hearing ended.

She added that Chua's defence has been inconsistent and said:"His insistence on denying the truth of matters that are plainly captured on video erodes any credibility he has. "Today we did not win the war, we did not win the battle, but we kept our positions, preventing them from advancing," Mr Poroshenko told the crowd. Some, including the translator for the news conference, heard her say “she was fine that day," but others thought Yao said “we were all fine that day." In response to queries from The Straits Times, A*Star said that Chua left the organisation in July 2020. Chua will return to court for sentencing on Jan 24.
