10 July 2024


Kwun Tong Law Courts Building

Two domestic helpers whose bank accounts were allegedly used to deposit money raised from crime, which then became “clean” when withdrawn, are headed for trial at Kwun Tong court after they reaffirmed their not-guilty plea in separate hearings today.

Josephine Calabroso, 58 years old, pleaded not guilty to dealing with property known or believed to represent proceeds of indictable offense, otherwise known as money laundering and a violation of the Organized and Serious Crimes Ordinance.

The charge arose from the deposits and withdrawals totalling $1,025,366.26 that were made in her HSBC account between Aug. 25 and Nov. 30, 2020.


Chief Magistrate So Wai-tak scheduled a pre-trial review for Sept. 3.

He released Calabroso on bail of $3,000.

Ma. Angie Nequinto, aged 53, had her own pre-trial review today, with the prosecution saying they plan to rely mostly on the agreed facts to seek her conviction while her defense lawyer said their plan boils down to explaining these facts.

The charge arose from the inflow and outflow of $868,704.52 in her Hang Seng Bank account between Sept. 23 and Dec. 28, 2019.

The police complaint charged that she did the offense with the assistance of a female only identified as Zeny.

Magistrate So scheduled a one-day trial fr Sept. 23.

He released her on bail of $1,500.
