British Banker ‘Fit’ To Enter Plea Over Brutal Hong Kong Murders
HONG KONG, Nov 24 – A court in Hong Kong has ruled that a British banker charged with the grisly murder of two Indonesian women is psychologically fit to enter a plea on both counts. However, the case has been adjourned until July next year to allow for more than 200 pieces of forensic and DNA evidence to be analyzed. Rurik Jutting has been in custody since November 1 following the discovery of the bodies of the two women at his home in an upscale residential complex in the city’s Wan Chai district.
His last court appearance on November 10 was adjourned after prosecutors requested psychological assessments of the former employee of Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Jutting, who has yet to enter a plea, appeared in court Monday unshaven and wearing the same dark sunglasses. He spoke only once to confirm that he understood what was happening.
