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.
