Filipina DH jailed 4 months for forging employer’s termination notice

28 April 2022

Immigration says the Filipina forged the notice of termination so she could continue working in HK

A Filipina domestic helper was sentenced to four months in jail at Shatin Magistrates’ Court this morning (Apr 28) for falsifying the notice of termination of her former employer and then using it to apply for a new employment visa.

Lorjean A Mabborang, 27, had pleaded guilty to one count of forgery, another of  using a copy of a false instrument and a third, or making false representation to an Immigration officer.


According to court records, the Filipina submitted a foreign domestic helper visa application to the Immigration Department in March 2022 and attached a copy of the notice of termination by her previous employer as a supporting document.

A check of the FDH’s records showed that the original notice sent by the previous employer in January 2022 was different from that submitted by the helper in applying for a new employment visa.


This raised the suspicion of an Immigration officer and the case was investigated.

When questioned, Mabborang admitted that she had altered the reason for her termination by her former employer and had used this to make false representation with Immigration to have her visa approved so she could continue working in Hong Kong.

Investigators subsequently found the original copy of the altered notification in the helper’s place of residence.

Acting Principal Magistrate David Cheung sentenced the defendant to four months in jail for each charge, with the sentences to run concurrently.


Anyone who makes, uses, or is in possession of a false instrument can be sentenced to a maximum of 14 years in prison.

Making false representation to an Immigration officer, meanwhile, is punishable by imprisonment for up to 14 years, and a maximum fine of $150,000.
