A 40-year-old Filipina domestic helper was charged today, Aug 12, in Eastern Court of stealing more than $140,000 worth of cash and jewelry from her employer in North Point for the past 8 months.

Aileen Rima appeared before Magistrate Bina Chainrai, accused of stealing four gold necklaces and two gold bracelets, as well as Hong Kong dollars, US dollars and euro banknotes equivalent to more than $90,000, all belonging to her employer, Elena Chan.
The prosecution said the cash were stolen in batches of $4,810 local currency, 600 euros, US$2,000 and $8,300. It said the thefts occurred between Dec 19 last year and Aug 5 this year.

The alleged theft took place inside Chan’s house at Block 8, City Garden, at 233 Electric Road.
No plea was taken and Rima was remanded in custody.

Chainrai adjourned the case until Sept 23 for further investigation.
The case was heard a day after another maid, Margie Tagulao, 41, pleaded guilty to 11 charges of theft involving $543,000 worth of jewelry and gold bars from her employer in Shek O.

On Monday, another Filipina, Edarlyn Emperador, 50, was accused in Kowloon City court of stealing $860,000 worth of watches, jewelry and gold bars owned by her employer in Homantin, Kowloon.
