Reef resort money ‘used on male prostitute’



AN ACCOUNTANT accused of stealing up to $ 850,000 from a location in the Great Barrier Reef to spend in "gambling" and "male prostitute" has frozen his assets.

Jameson Tatel Yu, 34, who was earning $ 80,000 annually as an accountant at the Heron Island Resort, had his assets frozen by the Supreme Court after admitting to his boss that he was stealing from company.

During a court hearing last week the court was told that the resort's accountants found 34 "suspicious payments totaling $ 724,533".

Yu was also charged with fraud.

Accountant Steve Marsten told the court in his August 8 report that there may be additional suspicious payments.

<p style= The general manager of Heron Island Resort, Anthony Barradale, told the court that he faced Yu – a Filipino citizen with Australian residence – on July 23 after a supplier asked why he had not been paid.

Barradale told the court that Yu, who had only worked as an accountant at the Heron Island resort for three months, "quit smoking and admitted he had made a gamble and had problems with a male prostitute ".

Barradale said that the next day, Yu "admitted to having become accustomed to the resort" inappropriately and paying money for his bank accounts "for a few weeks".

"He said the sum was between $ 350,000 and $ 400,000," Barradale told the court.

Yu said he had changed the supplier's bank account details to steal the money, the judge was informed yesterday.

Yu later claimed to have $ 249,398 and traveled with Mr Barradale to Gladstone to repay the money at the hotel on July 25th.

However, the hotel's external accountants later reported that they believed that up to $ 850,000 were stolen between April 18 and July 24.

Barradale told the court he had no idea that Yu was stealing, and he was shocked when he found out.

Yu worked as assistant financial controller for Traders Hotel (now called Hotel Jen) in Brisbane between August 2008 and June 2014, when it was owned by the Shangri-La Group, according to his CV.

In 2014 and 2015 he worked for the Accor Group in Sydney, then the following year he worked for the Holiday Inn Melbourne, the court heard.

The case returns to court tomorrow.
