Case adjourned because there was no Cantonese interpreter

A CASE in which a Fishtfoft man is accused of driving with excess alcohol was adjourned by magistrates because no Cantonese interpreter had been booked for the hearing.

The allegation against Wiwg Kee Lee, 57, of Buckingham Close in the village, was put back to a date later this month.

He is accused of driving a VW Passat car in Boston on June 16 with 50mcg alcohol in 100ml of breath – the legal limit is 35mcg.

At Boston Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, solicitor Beris Brickles said his client’s command of English was not sufficient to warrant proceeding with the case in the absence of an interpreter.

No objection was raised by prosecutor Jim Clare.
