(01-21 10:32)

A young domestic helper from Indonesia who claims she was severely abused while working for a local family, has given a statement to labor officers and police who are visiting her in the country.
Hong Kong Police have admitted not investigating a complaint about her injuries earlier, insisting on evidence.
The officers arrived in Java last night.
Speaking on an RTHK radio program, Labor Commissioner, Cheuk Wing-hing, said the department would focus on claims that the helper was owed wages and denied holidays, while the police would investigate allegations of wounding.
