Indonesian maid jailed for stealing $64k to pay friend’s loan

08 March 2019

Eastern Magistracy in Sai Wan Ho

By Vir B. Lumicao

An Indonesian domestic helper was jailed for eight months on Mar 8 after pleading guilty in Eastern Court to stealing cash and valuables totaling $64,000 from her employer to pay off a friend’s loan for which she had acted as guarantor.

Yeni Susanti, 30, pleaded guilty to three counts of theft before Magistrate Peter Law. She admitted stealing the money and valuables after her friend who took out the loan disappeared.
The thefts took place at the employer’s flat in The Belcher’s in Pokfulam over a seven-month period. The loot comprised $14,000 cash, a Canon EOS camera worth $25,000, a Canon camera lens valued at $12,500 and a Leica camera lens worth $12,500.

Court records show that in February last year, Susanti’s employer Chan Ka-yee placed $10,000 in a locked box in the living room of her flat. Chan also placed $4,000 in three red packets and put them in a transparent plastic folder and locked them in a steel bookshelf in her son’s bedroom.


On Oct 24, the employer opened the box and noticed that the $10,000 was missing.
On Jan 31 this year, upon the return of her son from abroad, she also discovered that the $4,000 was missing from the locked bookshelf. Despite these discoveries, she took no action.

But on Feb. 7 this year, Chan discovered that the camera and two lenses that she had put in a locked box on Jan. 26 were also missing, so she reported to the police.
After Susanti was arrested, she admitted to having prised open the locked containers to take the cash and the camera kit. The camera and lenses were later recovered from Oiwah Pawnshop in Mong Kok.

The defense lawyer asked for a lenient sentence, citing the disappearance of Susanti’s friend as a mitigating factor, but Magistrate Law was not convinced. He said theft was a serious offence and the case involved a large amount locked in a safe.

After giving a discount for Susanti’s guilty plea, the magistrate sentenced her to eight months in jail for each of the three charges, to be served concurrently.
