Taiwan model sentenced to 2 months for working illegally: HK

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Hong Kong authorities have sentenced Taiwanese model Cindy (星野優) to two months behind bars for working illegally, Hong Kong's Sing Tao Daily (星島日報) reported on Thursday.

Cindy, whose real name is Tang Tzu-han (唐子涵), had appeared in the early episodes of variety show "Blackie's Teenage Club" (我愛黑澀會) and went on to a career in sensual photography.

A court in Hong Kong's Sha Tin District has sentenced Tang to two months in prison for working in Hong Kong without a permit, according to the Sing Tao Daily.

The newspaper reported that Tang, 32, arrived in Hong Kong on April 1 for what she said was a three-day photo shoot.

At 7 p.m. the same day, Tang and the Japanese model Tomomi attended an event held by a Hong Kong photography association in a hotel room, the report said.

They were apprehended by an undercover border official and sent to authorities for questioning, according to Sing Tao Daily.

According to Hong Kong media, Tang had expected payment of NT$8,000 for participating in the event.

Entering Hong Kong to work without a permit is subject to a fine of up to HKD$50,000 (NT$209,000) and up to two years behind bars.
