  • Hong Kong authorities have sentenced Taiwanese model Cindy to two months behind bars for working illegally. Cindy, whose real name is Tang Tzu-han, had appeared in the early episodes of variety show "Blackie's Teenage Club" and went on to a career in sensual photography.

    A court in Hong Kong's Sha Tin District has sentenced Tang to two months in prison for working in Hong Kong without a permit.

    It is reported that Tang, 32, arrived in Hong Kong on April 1 for a three-day photo shoot. At 7 p.m. the same day, Tang and another Japanese model Tomomi attended an event held by a Hong Kong photography association in a hotel room.

    They were apprehended by an undercover border official and sent to authorities for questioning.

    According to Hong Kong media, Tang had expected payment of NT$8,000 for participating in the event.

    As per the law, entering Hong Kong to work without a permit is subject to a fine of up to HKD$50,000 (NT$209,000) and up to two years behind bars.
