Helper in drug trial says she received parcel for ‘bisexual’ Pinay

15 October 2019

The accused Filipina says she accepted the parcel containing drugs for a 'bisexual' volleyball player

A domestic helper who is being tried for drug trafficking in the High Court said she did not know a DHL parcel that a “bisexual” fellow Filipina had asked her to receive contained 237 grams of methamphetamine valued at $334,530.

Defendant Analyn de Leon took the witness stand on Oct. 14 when she appeared at her trial on a charge of trafficking in a dangerous drug before Judge Remedios D’Almada.

Earlier, Customs officer Lau Tik-yee, gave evidence on the events that led to the arrest of De Leon on May 4 during which he posed as a DHL man to deliver to her a parcel from Benin in Africa that contained the illegal drug.
The prosecution said De Leon was a last-minute recipient of the drug parcel that was sent to her employer’s address at Yoho Midtown estate in Yuen Long in May last year. 

De Leon, on questioning by her counsel Oliver Davies, denied she ever used drugs in Hong Kong or back in the Philippines. She denied having any connections with drug suppliers or syndicates anywhere.

De Leon said she received the parcel at the request of Filipina fellow volleyball player named Adelaida whom she met at a one-day friendly league in Kowloon about three months before the delivery of the parcel.

She said Adelaida, who she described as a bisexual woman, allegedly said she was expecting a parcel containing a pair of shoes and a garment ordered from an online trader that was meant for another person.

When Davies asked De Leon if she had the chance to inspect the contents of the parcel, she said she did not bother to check because its wrapping had already been opened and it looked like rubbish. She said she didn’t know or think that there was drug in the parcel.

During cross-examination by Prosecutor Ken Ng, De Leon was asked about the long list of voice calls, chats and messages that she had with both Adelaida and “New” on two separate cell phones from Apr 13 to the evening just before the delivery of the parcel.
Ng asked her who New was, with whom De Leon had received and made calls as well as chatted on Whatsapp and on regular phone line. The defendant said New and Adelaida were one and the same person.

The defendant said Adelaida requested her to receive the parcel on her behalf in the last week of April 2018 because she would be in the Philippines on the expected delivery date.

De Leon said she agreed because her employer knew that she was into online business ordering merchandise from Zalora which she passed on to her friends at a mark-up. She said her employers were also ordering goods from the online store.

She said her orders were usually delivered to her boarding house but this time she had the parcel delivered to her employers’ house.   

The trial continues.
