Owner of lost HKID falsely charged with theft

16 June 2021

The court heard that the Filipina who jumped bail in a theft case had used someone else's HKID 

A Filipina resident of Hong Kong went to Eastern Court on Tuesday, Jun 15, expecting to face only a minor charge of illegal gambling, but was shocked to hear that there was an outstanding arrest warrant for her non-appearance in a theft case.

But after C.F. Isidro, a laid-off airport lounge staff, was called to the stand, the prosecution told Magistrate Peter Law that it was a case of mistaken identity.\

It turned out that Isidro had lost her HK ID card and it was used by another Filipina when she committed theft earlier this year. After officers from the Central Police station arrested the impostor she posted bail but did not appear in court for a hearing, so a warrant was issued against her.

On Apr 20, Isidro was arrested for illegal gambling in Hung Hom. She posted bail of $1,000 and was told to report to police on May 21. When she returned on that date, the police told her she must report to the Central Police District for another case.

Isidro complied but investigators showed her a photo of a different suspect who had used her HKID card. Isidro told them she had lost that HKID card some time ago but did not report to police.

In court on Tuesday, a case officer from the Central Police confirmed that Isidro was not the woman they had arrested for theft.


The magistrate ordered a break in the hearing so the defense and prosecution could thresh things out. When they returned, Law agreed to reset the hearing date on Jul 27 at the request of the prosecution.
