"Parrot man" Zeng Guoyan showed up at the Subordinate Courts on Wednesday morning in an attempt to attend the City Harvest trial.

Mr Zeng, who claimed to have attended services at City Harvest Church before, joined a queue made up largely of church supporters waiting to get into the court for the afternoon session. He showed up around 10.15am, cut the queue near the back, and started singing Christian hymns. Security officers told him to go back to the end of the queue.
