Top judge's niece Amina Bokhary set to spend Christmas in custody

Top judge's niece Amina Bokhary set to spend Christmas in custody

Amina Bokhary, the niece of Court of Final Appeal's non-permanent judge Kemal Bokhary, will spend Christmas in the Siu Lam Psychiatric Center as she retracted her bail application on Thursday after being charged with damaging two cars by throwing domestic helper's personal items onto the street. 
Forty-six-year-old Amina faces two counts of criminal damage and the hearing will continue in the Eastern Magistrates' Courts tomorrow and Friday next week (Dec 30), awaiting a psychiatrist report for her. 

Amina was set to file her bail application to the High Court today but arrived in the courtroom without having any legal representative. She then retracted her application and apologized to the court and judge Esther Toh Lye-ping for the inconvenience caused, adding that she would hire a lawyer. 

It was understood that Amina banished the domestic helper from her Wan Chai home on Tuesday last week (Dec 13) because she was unsatisfied with the helper's work performance. 

As the helper reached the building's concourse, the security guard heard loud bangs from the estate's carpark and found two cars were damaged by debris, which was confirmed to be the personal items of the helper. 

Amina was arrested and charged with two counts of criminal damage by police two days later, and the case was first mentioned in the Eastern Magistrates' Courts last Friday (Dec 16). 

In 2010, Amina pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer, careless driving and failing to provide a sample for the breath alcohol test after her car crashed into a bus and she slapped a traffic cop who tried to stop her from leaving. 

This case soon went viral given her identity and how she resisted police arrest was captured by TV stations. 

However, the judge back then handed down a one-year probation order instead of an imprisonment sentence, quoting Amina's good background and saying she was a mental illness patient who needed help. Amina was ordered to spend the first three months in a treatment facility in California, the U.S., and was fined HK$8,000. She also had her driver's license suspended for a year. 

In 2008, Amina was handed a community service order of 240 hours and ordered to pay a taxi driver HK$1,000 in compensation for she attacked the cabbie who refused her credit card payment and a female cop. 

In 2001, she was fined HK$9,000 for criminal damage and assaulting a police officer over a brawl with her boyfriend outside a bar in Central.
