A WOMAN admitted selling her North Point flat to repay gambling debts within two years of a new tenancy being refused, the District Court heard yesterday. The court heard unemployed Rossie Lee, 32, who was until February 12, 1991, the owner of a fifth floor flat at Full Wealth Gardens, Kai Yuen Terrace, had sold the flat to repay debts in a bid to shake off loan sharks. She was fined $5,000 after she pleaded guilty to assigning the premises without the authority of the Lands Tribunal within 24 months of the tribunal declining to grant a new tenancy. It was the Crown's case that on May 15, 1989, Lee had successfully opposed the granting of a new tenancy on the grounds that she was getting married and needed to live in the flat. But on February 12, 1991, she assigned the premises without authority within the two-year restriction period. Defence lawyer Mr Simon Chan said Lee and her fiance lived in the flat from July 1989 until Lee sold it with vacant possession for $900,000 on February 12, 1991. He said Lee expected to give birth in May and urged the court to treat the case as exceptional. Judge Hawkes accepted there were strong mitigating factors. Mr Walter Lau appeared for the Crown.
