A factory manager, released from prison in July for hiring illegal workers, must now live with the fear of being sent back to jail. The Court of Appeal deemed the three-month term served by Wong Chung-lee, 50, as 'hopelessly inadequate'. The term was increased to 13 months, suspended for two years, as it would be 'too cruel' to ship him back to prison. He has 10 months left of the suspended term. 'Those minded to employ illegal workers should not doubt that they can expect severe sentences,' Mr Justice Gerald Nazareth said. A magistrate had jailed Wong and fined him $10,500 for offering employment to 21 mainlanders staying in Hong Kong with two-way permits. He paid them $100 a day. Wong admitted the offence.
