Pinay domestic helper accused of theft in a supermarket in Hong Kong

According to Hong Kong news online, a Filipino domestic helper named Rica E. Q. was ordered to pay a fined of $4000 for failing to pay grocery items worth $327 at a supermarket.

West Kowloon Deputy Magistrate Ng Mee-wah said that he found Rica E. Q. guilty of theft on October 4. And also he added that she has one month to raise the money.

Rica said she was shopping 2 times for grocery items at the Fusion supermarket on the ground floor of Discovery Bay Plaza. First, she already paid for her own personal items when she again shopped for the dinner of her employer.

The incident happened at around 2:10 pm on June 18. She took a bag of pork and other grocery items and put them in her own recycled bag together with other items she had bought. She didn't separate the last item that she bought. And then she walked out of the supermarket without paying. But the store employee was seen of what she was doing and then the police arrested her.

She forgot to pay the items because she was thinking of her boyfriend that lost his job. And she had to meet her friend outside, said Rica.

Rica also added that she was work with her employer for 13 years. Her employer helped her by testified that she was trustworthy.

Now there is a criminal record of Rica in Hong Kong, and that's the reason for the Immigration Department to reject her future working visa.
