An Indonesian maid, Ms Parti Liyani, was acquitted on appeal on Sept 4 of stealing from the family of then Changi Airport Group Chairman Liew Mun Leong, nearly four years after she was fired by her former employer.

She had been convicted in March 2019 on four charges of stealing.

The appeal judge had said: “In my judgment, there is reason to believe that the Liew family, upon realising her unhappiness, took the pre-emptive first step to terminate her employment suddenly without giving her sufficient time to pack, in the hope that Ms Parti would not use the time to make a complaint to MOM”.

“Once she made express her desire to complain to MOM after her sudden termination on Oct 28, 2016, the Liew family followed up with the police report to ensure her return would be prevented”, the judge added. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
