Immigration Dept defends maid decision
(01-27 18:12)

The Immigration Department has defended its action in allowing an Indonesian helper, who'd allegedly been seriously abused by her employer, to leave the territory earlier this month.
The Director of Immigration, Chan Kwok-ki, said the maid, Erwiana Sulistyaningsih, hadn't asked for help.
Questions have been raised about why immigration officers did not notice that she was badly injured, and allowed her to board the plane. --RTHK
