Erwiana's case adjourned
(07-10 13:34)

The District Court on Thursday set the 21st of next month for a second pre-trial hearing of the case involving Indonesian domestic helper, Erwiana Sulistyaningsih, who was allegedly abused while working for her former employer, Law Wan-tung.
Law is accused of abusing Erwiana and two of her other former domestic helpers from Indonesia. She is also accused of failing to pay Erwiana more than HK$28,000 in wages, and making her work on rest days and public holidays.
Speaking outside the court, Law's lawyers said they had received Erwiana's medical report from Indonesia and would appoint another medical expert to deal with the court case.
Erwiana's case made international headlines after it came to light earlier this year. She was later chosen by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the year. --RTHK
