A former property agent who abused two domestic workers working for her father was jailed for 12 months on Tuesday.

Wong Pui Kwan, 27, had faced six charges of causing hurt to two maids, three of using criminal force and two each of committing a rash act and insulting modesty.

The divorcee with three children, who is slim with long coloured hair, had admitted to six charges of causing hurt, using criminal force, rash act to endanger personal safety of the victim, Filipina Rinonos Analyn Almoite, 30, and insulting her modesty at her father's home in Sengkang East Road in 2011.

The court was told Wong had been abusing Ms Rinonos since October 2011, a month after she began work for the household. She ran away with the other maid, Myanmar national Su Su Han, 35, on Dec 6, 2011 while Wong and the rest of the household were still sleeping.
