Former Vietnamese refugee, Oanh Le Duong, received a three-year prison sentence and a one year non-parole period from an Australian court this week.

Earlier in the month, the part-owner and book-keeper for the Three Three Clothing firm was found guilty in the District Court of South Australia on two counts of defrauding the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). She did so by generating false invoices in 1994 and 1995.

These were for the alleged sub-contracting of work for the now-defunct clothing company.

In the two years, she overstated its labour costs by $A954,000. $A350,000 of the $A473,000 in tax owing to the ATO is still outstanding.
