14 April 2016

A 50-year-old Filipina domestic worker was sentenced to six weeks in jail on Dec 14 after she pleaded guilty to stealing jewelry worth $20,000 from her employer.
Convicted of theft on her own admission was a woman surnamed Bayog, according to information supplied by the Hong Kong Police.
A duty officer at the Police Public Relations Bureau said in reply to an inquiry from The SUN that the woman was now in prison to serve out her sentence
“Police received a report on Dec 10 from a 38-year-old man surnamed Lam about his jewelry worth $20,000 stolen by his female domestic helper in a unit on Grampian Road  in Kowloon City,” the PPRB officer said over the telephone.
She said a police team went to the address to investigate and arrested the domestic helper on the same day
“The arrested woman was charged and she appeared in court on Dec 14.
She pleaded guilty and was sent to prison for six weeks,” the officer said.
Bayog’s case was not included in the daily court list as she pleaded guilty at her initial court appearance.
But The SUN got wind of the case through reliable sources, who gave her first name as Alien .

The PPRB gave no further detail of the case. — Vir B. Lumicao
