23 September 2020

By Vir B. Lumicao

The valuables were allegedly taken from the employer's flat in City Garden, North Point


A Filipina helper was told today, Sept 23, that the total amount of cash and jewelry she is accused of stealing from her employer in North Point has been reduced by $42,000 because of an apparent miscalculation in the value of a jewelry set.

But this left 40-year-old Aileen Rima still facing charges of stealing cash and jewelry worth a total of more than $106,000 belonging to her employer, Elena Chan.

In the amended charge, Rima is accused of stealing a necklace and pendant set valued at $15,000 (from $57,000), as well as $4,810 local currency, 600 euros, US$2,000 and US$8,300. The amendment substantially reduced the value of the loot to $106,150.

Chan claimed she had kept the jewelry and the money in a safe inside her house in City Garden at 233 Electric Road, and discovered they were missing on Aug 5.

Rima was originally set to enter a plea today but Eastern Court Magistrate Bina Chainrai deferred the plea-taking after the prosecution announced it had amended the charge.

Chainrai adjourned the case until Nov 11 and refused Rima’s bail application.
