Alleged High-Roller Thief Allowed to Flee

15 May 2003

AUSTRALIA – As reported by the Sydney Morning Herald: "Vivien Feng allegedly took high rollers at Sydney's Star City Casino to the cleaners, robbing them of almost $250,000 in American and British currency.

"But the Hong Kong resident and gambling tour hostess, who was staying at a hotel at the casino early this year, couldn't believe her luck when a detective handed her back her passport.

"She had already surrendered it as part of `police bail' that required she live at a Sydney address while awaiting a court hearing on stealing charges. By the time NSW police discovered their error in late February, Feng, 29, had flown to Hong Kong.

"The bungle only came to light when her solicitor sought a bail variation for her passport's return - after she left the country.

"…Feng has returned to Sydney and been granted continuing bail on condition she not leave the country pending the next hearing."
