Pinay charged for selling food in Central bound over

03 April 2024

 

Immigration cases are often heard at Shatin Court

A Filipina domestic helper accused of doing illegal work by selling food in Central, walked out of Shatin Court relieved after her breach of condition of stay case was withdrawn Tuesday (Apr 2) by the prosecution.

In return J. Torres, 50 years old, agreed to be bound over for one year – promising not to reoffend during this period or else be made to pay a fine of $2,000.

She was also made to pay court costs of $500, which was the amount of her bail.

Torres had been accused of violating Section 41 of the Immigration Ordinance and the Immigration Regulations, which specify penalties of fine of up to $50,000 and two years’ imprisonment.

TAWAG NA!

But in today’s hearing before Magistrate Gary Chu, the prosecution offered no evidence and offered to withdraw the charges if Torres would agree to the bind-over.

The case arose after she was caught selling food in Central on July 5, 2023.

A condition of her stay as a domestic helper prohibits her from taking any employment other than what is stated in her contract, as approved by the Immigration Department.

It specifies that she can only do domestic work in the address stated in her contract.
