A 59-year-old man was arrested for alleged conspiracy to defraud in Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island on Wednesday after his company failed to book air-tickets for about 600 Filipino domestic workers in Hong Kong.
Peter Boyce, the Australian co-owner of Peya Travel Agency, was arrested by the Central Police District Crime Squad in a residential apartment in Wan Chai and has been detained for investigation, Oriental Daily reported.
He is the husband of Rhea Donna Boyce, co-owner of the travel agency who was arrested by police on Monday.
Rhea Boyce was released on bail on Wednesday afternoon pending further inquiries. She needs to report to the police in early January, Sing Pao reported.
The ticketing fiasco unveiled a week before Christmas when a group of Filipino domestic workers found that air-tickets purchased from Peya Travel, were invalid at Hong Kong International Airport.
According to police, a total of 645 victims paid up to HK$2 million (US$255,943) to Peya Travel for their tickets.
Meanwhile, police also received a report from a 67-year-old man who said Peya Travel had not paid for HK$3 million worth of air-tickets since May this year.
