British Banker Charged With Killing Two Indonesian Sex Workers In Hong Kong
Yet another body has been found inside a suitcase as part of a suspected murder in Asia.
Via NY Post reports:
Hong Kong police charged a British banker on Monday with killing two women, including an Indonesian whose body was found in a suitcase on the balcony of the man’s upscale apartment, authorities said.
Rurik George Caton Jutting appeared briefly at a preliminary hearing at which he spoke only to confirm that he understood the two murder charges against him.
Police earlier said Jutting, 29, had called them to his apartment in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai nightlife and red light district at 3:42 a.m. Saturday.
Court documents listed his nationality as British and his occupation as a “banker of Bank of America.” Jutting worked for the bank until recently, Bank of America Merrill Lynch spokesman Paul Scanlon said Sunday, without providing more details.
According to a police statement, officers rushed to the man’s apartment, where they found an unresponsive woman, age 25 to 30, with cuts to her neck and buttock. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
While investigating, police found a suitcase on the balcony containing the body of a woman who had sustained neck injuries and had died a few days earlier, police said. Police also seized a knife from the 31st-floor apartment in the upscale J Residence tower.
A charge sheet said a woman named Sumarti Ningsih was killed Oct. 27, indicating she was the woman whose body was found in the suitcase. It said the other person was an “unknown female.”
Indonesian Consulate spokeswoman Sam Aryadi said Sumarti came from the city of Cilacap in central Java. He said the consulate was working with Hong Kong police to find out more about the second victim. Local media reports and Eni Lestari, an adviser with the Association of Indonesian Migrant Workers in Hong Kong, also indicated that the second woman was Indonesian.
During the brief court appearance at Eastern Magistrates’ Court, the two murder charges were read to Jutting, who had thick stubble and wore black pants and a black T-shirt with “New York” and “Champions” written on it. When asked if he understood each charge, he said “I do” twice in a calm voice. The judge granted his request to be remanded to prison detention rather than police custody. The reason for the request was unclear.
Martyn Richmond, a temporary lawyer assigned to Jutting, complained that police refused to let him contact a lawyer of his choice or the British Consulate while in custody. He added that if Jutting’s requests were granted, he “may well cooperate” with a police reconstruction at the crime scene.
The case was adjourned until Nov. 10.
This is so sad. Sumarti, the woman whose body has been identified only entered Hong Kong less than a month ago, on October 4th, using a tourist visa and she was actually supposed to go back today, since her visa expired on Nov. 3rd. The police are still trying to locate both victims families to let them know what happened.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those women’s families. We hope this scumbag is prosecuted to the fullest extent. We hate to see the rich and powerful prey on the poor.
