A domestic helper yesterday pleaded not guilty to three charges, which began after she was arrested for allegedly selling a t-shirt with a fake label, and set the ball rolling for a trial in Eastern Court to clear her name.

Bianca Inocencio, 36 years old, was arrested by officers from the Customs and Excise Department on Jan. 14 on the pavement near Prince’s Bldg. and near MTR Exit K for allegedly selling a t-shirt with a forged Adidas trademark, in violation of the Trade Description Ordinance.

She was also charged with possession of goods with forged trademarks, namely 19 T-shirts with the Adidas mark, 15 Nike and two Puma.


When the officers found out during the investigation that she was a domestic helper, they also charged her with breach of condition of stay, for violation of the Immigration Ordinance and Immigration Regulations.

A duty lawyer for Inocencio said her defense will rely on the assertion by a man who had tried to  convince an arresting officer that he owned the item being sold.

The lawyer added that she will present a character witness for Inocencio, as against 11 witnesses lined up by the prosecution.

Prrincipal Magistrate Don So scheduled the trial for Aug. 23.

He freed Inocencio on a cash bail of $1,500.
