Pinay worker in HK loses job after stealing items at a mall for her daughter

Her crime has also led her to be fired from her job immediately as she has been sentenced to four weeks in prison for each theft she committed.

However, Principal Magistrate Bina Chainrai suspended it for 18 months to see if she will not commit any crime within that period.
