Chainrai refused Sabugo’s $500 bail application and ordered her remanded in custody after the prosecution objected, saying the case was a serious breach of trust.

The prosecution said the defendant was arrested on Oct 11 after her employer Duan Li reported the alleged theft inside a flat at Upton, an apartment block at 180 Connaught Road West, Kennedy Town.

Meanwhile, another Filipina domestic worker was charged in the same court for possessing part 1 poison after a pack of sleeping pills were found in her bag.

M.C. Caratao, 41, did not enter any plea when she appeared before Magistrate Chainrai.

The defendant was arrested on Aug 20 on Johnston Road, Wanchai, after being found with 10 zopiclone tablets, a prescription drug used for treating insomnia, which is classified as part 1 poison in Hong Kong.
