Daphne Iking's ex-hubby not dad of child
The DNA of Daphne Iking’s three-year-old child was not a match to her ex-husband Ryan Chong Yiing Yih, a Kuala Lumpur magistrate's court heard Friday.
Chong, 32, who has accused corporate figure Darren Choy Khin Ming, 45, of enticing Iking, claimed that that the results of a paternity test stated that he was "excluded from being the biological father" of the child.
During his examination-in-chief by his lawyer Wong Kian Kheong, he told the court that he had his suspicions about his daughter after reading the e-mail correspondence between Iking and Choy spanning from 2007 to 2008.
Chong said he came across the emails on his home computer on Aug 10, 2008.
In an excerpt of an online chat between the two which he read out in court, Iking was alleged to have told Choy "I want her (the child) to look like you".
Other excerpts included her allegedly telling Choy that the baby "has your face shape. Not mine, not Ryan’s. You know you have a Bajau face right?".
In taking the stand, Chong read out emails in which Choy addressed Iking as "sweetie", "baby", "baby girl" and "Your Highness".
Choy was also alleged to have written: "I’ve found a special someone. One whom I share all my laughter with so willingly. One who has given me a new lease of life".
"As I write this short note, I realise you are more than special. I’m blessed. So blessed. Never a day goes by without me thinking of my baby," Choy was said to have written.
One of the emails also had a list of some 30 hotels which they have stayed together in, and also an invitation for Iking to join him on a trip to Vienna and London.
Darren Choy Khin Ming has been accused of enticing Daphne Iking, knowing that she was a married woman
Chong was testifying in a private summons he initiated against Choy under Section 498 of the Penal Code for enticing or taking away or detaining with criminal intent a married woman.
Choy was charged with enticing Iking, knowing that she was a married woman, with the intention of having sexual intercourse.
He allegedly committed the offence at a condominium unit in Taman Tun Dr Ismail between July 2007 and September last year.
If found guilty, he can be jailed up to two years, fined or both.
Representing Choy were lawyers Datuk Jagjit Singh and Akbardin Abdul Kader.
Earlier, Wong also told the court that he had subpoenaed Iking as a witness in court.
However, when the court asked if she would turn up, Wong replied: "Man proposes, God disposes. I can only issue the subpoena."
The hearing before magistrate Engku Ahmad Rashdi Engku Abdillah continues on Monday (Dec 20). - The Star
