A 57-year-old Filipina has faced court in Hong Kong charged with using false documents when attempting to cash US$2 billion worth of fake bank drafts in Kowloon.
Businesswoman Elena S Orosa, who appeared in the District Court on April 17, was originally scheduled for plea-taking but her defense lawyer said the woman was getting a Legal Aid lawyer and needed time for further advice, sunwebhk.com reported.
Judge Anthony Kwok adjourned the hearing for two months and extended her bail.
Orosa came to Hong Kong as a tourist with another Filipina visitor, Veronica F Yambao. They allegedly tried to cash the bank instruments at a Hang Seng Bank on Hankow Road in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui last October.
However, staff at the bank found that the bank drafts were bogus and reported the case to police. That led to the two women being arrested.
Other details about the incident remain unclear.
