Seven Filipino residents, three of them women, and three local Chinese, were each fined $500 in Eastern Court on Mar 12 after they pleaded guilty to illegal gambling in North Point three months ago.

They were among 12 people who were arrested on Dec 7 when police raided an illegal casino allegedly operated by Hong Kong man Tsang Tak-ming on a 14th floor office in Bank Tower at 351-353 King’s Road, North Point.
Tsang, 29, who faces charges of possessing a dangerous drug and operating a gambling establishment, did not appear in court. Also absent was Thai female Jantip Chaimong, 28, who faces a charge of illegal gambling.

Tsang and Chaimong were ordered arrested by Magistrate Peter Law. The judge also ordered their police bails of $5,000 and $500, respectively, confiscated.
The seven Filipinos who pleaded guilty to the offence were Rolando Ledesma, 49; Carolina Fung, 46; RJ Raqueño, 30; Robert Aromin, 42; Thelma G. Abuan, 43; Liziel Retrita, 44, and Yiu Ka-wing (Michael G David), 28. Their fine of $500 each was to be taken from their bail money.

The three other defendants were Chinese nationals Cheng Po-wah, 59, Wong Sai-mui, 28, and Xu Haidong, 23.
The prosecution said all the defendants were arrested during a police raid on the illegal gambling joint at Bank Tower.

Initial reports quoted the police as saying that 15 people were arrested during the raid, but only 12 were eventually charged in court. The raid was conducted by officers of the Special Duty Squad of the Eastern District Police.

The raiding team seized gambling equipment and cash totaling $3,100, which were forfeited at the request of the prosecution, and approved by the magistrate.
