Chen Testifies In Photo Trial

Asian actor EDISON CHEN gave evidence to a court in Hong Kong via video-link on Tuesday (24Feb09) at the trial of a man accused of distributing explicit pictures of the actor.
The film star was at the centre of a scandal last year (08) when a tape of him allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a string of different women hit the internet.
The video, which Hong Kong Police say captures 1,300 private shots of Chen with at least half a dozen women, was reported to have been copied by staff at a computer shop when Chen put a faulty laptop in for repair.
Computer technician Ho-Chun Sze has since been charged with stealing the photographs from Chen's computer while servicing the machine and releasing them.
Chen refused to return from the United States to give evidence at the trial, instead providing evidence via video-link from his birthplace of Vancouver, Canada.
And Chen told the court on Tuesday he was the victim of "foul play", adding "I'm quite a private person. This was never meant for anyone else to see. This was a huge shock to me."
Chen told the court he believes the photos were copied from his laptop when he took it to a shop for repairs.
The trial continues.
