Woman in Simei condo row charged
Chinese national Tang Lei, who is out on $10,000 bail, is accused of hitting the Simei Green condo manager on his face and arms.

One of two sisters who created a ruckus at a condominium management office was charged in court yesterday with causing hurt and two counts of using criminal force on the building's manager.

Chinese national Tang Lei, 47, is accused of hitting Mr Colvin Quek Choon Kiat, 67, on his face and arms, causing bruises and abrasions over his forehead, at the Simei Green condominium management office on April 28.

She is also said to have spat and splashed liquid from a drink can at him that morning.

The dispute apparently arose when the women wanted to apply for an access card to the condominium.

The incident was captured on video and went viral online.

Tang's sister has not been charged. Mr Christopher Ravijit Singh Gill said he had just been briefed and will be making representations.

Tang is out on $10,000 bail and her passport has been impounded.

A pre-trial conference is scheduled for June 10.

If convicted of causing hurt, she faces a jail term of up to two years and/or a fine of up to $5,000.

The penalty for using criminal force is three months' jail and/or a fine of up to $1,500 per charge.
