Employee pleaded guilty for mishandling of clinic’s fund

A customer service officer of a clinic at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre has pleaded guilty to dishonestly misappropriating $10,000 from the company.

22-year-old Dayana Ismail from the Centre for Orthopaedics and Hip and Knee Surgery committed the offence sometime between August 2009 and April 27 this year.

In mitigation, she told District Judge Low Wee Ping that she regretted performing the act.


Dayana also asked the judge to give her some time to raise the money to repay the clinic.

He has given her one month to do so and she will appear again in court on August 24.

For committing the offence, she could be jailed for up to 15 years and fined.
