Additional charge in Erwiana case
(07-22 13:07)

The prosecution has laid another charge against a woman accused of abusing her former domestic helper from Indonesia.
The woman, Law Wan-tung, was already facing charges of abusing Erwiana Sulistyaningsih.
But when her case came up in court again on Tuesday, the prosecution laid an additional charge accusing her for failing to provide compulsory insurance for Erwiana, as well as for two of her other former domestic helpers who were also from Indonesia.
The earlier charges accused Law of failing to pay Erwiana more than HK$28,000 in wages, and making her work on rest days and public holidays.
The latest charge bring the total number of charges being faced by Law to twenty-one.
Erwian'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
