SINGAPORE - A woman who put up a $10,000 bond for a friend facing sex offence charges was ordered to pay the entire amount yesterday after he disappeared.

Freelance TV producer Lau Wei Yin, in her 30s, was a close friend of Gerard Fang Tian Huat, 42, who had claimed trial to 13 charges.

The businessman and former dance instructor allegedly had sex with three underage girls and committed indecent acts with a fourth.

The alleged offences occurred at various places, including Amara Hotel, over a year-long period from 2009 to 2010.
