Girl Lives Lavishly for 4 Years After $4.6m was Wrongly Transferred Into Her Account
The court heard she knew police were attempting to make contact with her and she obtained an emergency Malaysian passport in order to leave the country. But Ms Lee's lawyer reportedly said that she had wanted to return home to visit her parents who were unaware of her arrest in Australia. She was granted bail for $1,000 and faces strict bail conditions, with Magistrate Lisa Stapleton agreeing with the prosecution that her attempts to flee Australia meant that she posed a flight risk. Ms Stapleton appeared to suggest the student may not have broken the law and told the court: 'It's not proceeds of crime. It's money we all dream about. She didn't take it from (the bank). They gave it to her.' The magistrate said that if this is what happened, the student would owe the money she had spent but would not have broken the law.
