TWO restaurant employees demanded money from an assistant cook to let him keep his job, South Kowloon Court heard yesterday. Wong Che-yin, 37, supervisor of the dim sum section of the Hang Fook Lau Seafood Restaurant in Kowloon, pleaded guilty to six counts of accepting an advantage. He admitted having accepted a total of $3,000 from his subordinate, Lee Ching-hang, between September 20 and December 4 last year. Wong and co-accused, former assistant cook Cheng Chi-chung, 33, pleaded guilty to a joint charge of soliciting $1,000 from Mr Lee to allow him to keep his job. Magistrate Henry Brazier fined Cheng $2,500, and adjourned sentencing of Wong until July 21. The court heard Mr Lee joined the restaurant as an assistant cook at a monthly salary of $9,200 on Cheng's recommendation. But Cheng claimed that Wong thought Mr Lee's performance did not meet the restaurant's requirements and told Mr Lee to pay $1,000 per month to Wong to keep his job. On December 8 last year, Mr Lee resigned from the restaurant and reported the case to the Independent Commission Against Corruption.
