The adjournment was to give prosecution time to study Ming Yi's mitigation, which was submitted late by his lawyers.

Ming Yi, 47, and Yeung, 34, were found guilty a month ago in a highly-publicised criminal trial. The case concerned an unauthorised $50,000 loan on May 17, 2004 taken from Ren Ci Hospital's coffers.

The former Ren Ci chief executive and Yeung had conspired to make an unauthorised loan of $50,000 on May 17, 2004, and had given false information to the Commissioner of Charities (COC).

Ming Yi was also found guilty of misappropriating $50,000 and of lying to the COC in an oral statement. Both men's lawyers has since appealed against their convictions.
