A former Bank of China banker has been given a life ban by the Hong Kong regulator.
Following his conviction for theft by the Eastern Magistrates’ Court in October 2016, The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) in Hong Kong has banned Daniel Chen Chi Lik, a former staff of Bank of China (Hong Kong) (BOCHK), from re-entering the industry for life.
The court found that Chen, who was then a bank manager at a branch of BOCHK, had stolen a total of $40,000 from a teller cash box assigned to him on several occasions in September 2016.
The Eastern Magistrates’ Court sentenced Chen to two months’ imprisonment on 19 October 2016 after his conviction.
