An 'eccentric and arrogant' computer technician yesterday failed to persuade a judge to spare him from jail for credit-card fraud. Ho Wing-kong, who admitted using his Hospital Authority colleague's information to apply for seven credit cards, was jailed for two years. District Court Judge Richard Day said that although Ho's offences were far from 'professional and international fraud', there was nothing in his circumstances which warranted a suspended sentence. Ho, 32, yesterday repeatedly shouted from the dock to beg the judge not to send him to jail, saying he felt remorse for what he had done. The judge said the defendant, who was described in reports as 'stubborn, eccentric and arrogant', had not explained the motive behind his crime. The court had heard that between March and May this year, Ho applied for credit cards in the name of his colleague, Chan King-chung, a computer systems manager. He supplied, with the applications, personal documents relating to Mr Chan, including copies of his identity card. Ho pleaded guilty to seven charges of using a false instrument.
