Motorcycle expat used false work info on papers

An expat who will be deported for working illegally in China was not employed by the company listed on his documents, police revealed yesterday.

The expat’s case came to light after an investigation into a road accident on December 2 in which many Chinese initially thought he was a victim of extortion. But police later said the man, whose name was not disclosed, had hit and injured a woman while driving a motorcycle without a license.

The man was working as a chef in a western restaurant in Beijing, but his work and residence permits had another employer listed, China Central TV reported.

The man will be deported after serving five days administrative detention for working without a permit, police in Beijing said last Wednesday.

He was also fined 5,000 yuan (US$823).

The foreigner had previously been given seven days of administrative detention and fined 1,500 yuan for driving without a license and injuring the woman, police said.

The accident hit the headlines because it was thought the woman, surnamed Li, had thrown herself in front of the motorcycle to extort compensation. However, police later said the expat had knocked Li down, caused her injuries, and had shouted obscenities at her in Chinese and English.

CCTV said the man had been working illegally in Beijing for  four months and earned about 10,000 yuan a month at the restaurant.

During the police investigation into the accident it was found that his father was also working illegally.

The father, whose name was also not disclosed, was working at the same restaurant. He will be detained 14 days and fined 10,000 yuan. He will also be deported after serving his term, police said.
