Employer denies abusing maids
(06-10 13:10)

A woman has pleaded not guilty in the District Court to abusing three domestic helpers.
Law Wan-tung, 44, faces 20 charges, including causing grievous bodily harm and criminal intimidation.
The prosecution says it plans to summon 36 witnesses and expects the trial to last for at least 12 days. A pre-trial review was set for July 10 and the defendant's bail renewed.
The high-profile case came to light when one of the alleged victims - Indonesian maid Erwiana Sulistyaningsih - returned to her homeland suffering from serious injuries.
The courtroom was packed with observers, including migrant worker unionists and reporters from international agencies. --RTHK
