EX-MARIS STELLA HIGH PRINCIPAL LOSES APPEAL, SENT TO JAIL FOR 5 MONTHS

Former Maris Stella High principal Anthony Tan Kim Hock was packed off to jail for five months on Friday after the High Court dismissed his appeal against conviction and sentence for embezzlement.

According to an article in The Straits Times Online, last year, Tan, 66, was sentenced to five months’ jail after a district court found him guilty of criminal breach of trust for misappropriating school funds of about $68,000.

The Marist Brother used the money from a school chapel-building fund to renovate Champagnat House, the residence of his Catholic order in Flower Road.

The money paid for granite surfacing on walls, stained glass windows and kitchen appliances.
