An accountant was yesterday charged with thefts and fraud worth more than $35 million over an eight-year period. Eastern Court heard Danny Ng Yuen-jan, 37, had surrendered to the Commercial Crime Bureau at Kai Tak airport on Monday. Prosecutor Kate Lui Oi-hing said Ng had been responsible for the accounts of Hung Wan Construction Company and a subsidiary firm. Between April 1986 and March 1993, he allegedly stole $28 million from the companies' bank deposit accounts. The amounts taken varied from $77,349 to $2 million. The court was told Ng also issued five dishonoured cheques, each valued at more than $1 million, between February and June 1993. The accountant, who worked for the construction group for more than a decade, left the territory for Thailand after the alleged incidents. He faces a total of 35 charges of theft and using false instruments. No pleas have been entered. Magistrate Henry Brazier adjourned the case for two weeks for it to be transferred to the District Court. Ng was remanded in custody.
