Pinay admits assaulting 4-year old son of HK business tycoon

17 July 2017

Accused will be sentenced on July 21
A 32-year old Filipina domestic worker will be sentenced on July 21 in Eastern Court on five counts of common assault last year on the four-year-old son of disgraced business tycoon Carson Yeung.
According to local newspaper Sing Pao, the accused, Rochelle Lintag Dreck, admitted the assaults when she appeared at Eastern Court on Friday, July 7.
Dreck admitted to assaulting the boy in the kitchen of Yeung’s house on Baker Road in Mid-Levels, at the Convention Plaza Apartments on Harbour Road in Wan Chai, and at Canossa Hospital on Old Peak Road in 2016.
She began working for Yeung in 2010, or six years before the former chairman of the Birmingham Football Club was put back behind bars after losing his appeal against a six-year jail sentence imposed on him in 2014 for money laundering.
The boy’s mother, who has a business in Shenzhen, returned to Hong Kong every weekend, leaving her son in the care of helpers.
In early 2016, she reportedly noticed wounds on the boy but did not ask what caused them. In May the same year, she again saw injuries on her son’s ears and asked her domestic workers about them. One of the helpers then showed Mrs Yeung some videos she had taken of Dreck’s attacks on the boy. The mother called the police.
In the videos, Dreck was seen slapping the boy, hitting his hands with a comb, and poking his lip and nose, causing his nose to bleed.
When asked about the assaults, Dreck reportedly asked the magistrate for leniency, blaming the boy for being very naughty. She also said she had lost her job after she was arrested and could no longer send money to support her own three children in the Philippines.
The  magistrate dismissed Dreck’s explanations as mere excuses. The Filipina was remanded in custody pending sentencing. – reports from Sing Pao and Apple Daily
