Ex-tour guide faces 320 charges for faking accounts

FORMER China tour guide Yang Yin, who is embroiled in a legal tussle over the assets of a wealthy 87-year-old widow, was charged in court with another 320 charges for falsification of accounts.

The 40-year-old was represented by his lawyer Wee Pan Lee from Wee, Tay and Lim LLP.

Last Friday, Yang was accused of falsifying the accounts of his company Young Music and Dance Studio between 2009 and 2014.

He faced 11 charges for falsifying receipts worth S$28,000 (RM72,000) in total – purportedly paid to his company. These were mainly for services such as piano tuition.

Court papers stated that Yang had “willfully and with intent to defraud” falsified receipts of payments to Young Music and Dance Studio, when no such payments were made.

Yang set up the company in 2009 with the 87-year-old widow, Chung Khin Chun, and obtained an Em­­ployment Pass to work in Singapore.

If convicted, he faces imprisonment of up to 10 years, a fine, or both. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
