Hong Kong police announced on Monday that no evidence had been found to substantiate an accusation against a domestic worker involving a sexual assault.
The police announcement was related to a recent Facebook post saying police had received a report from a Hong Kong mother, who accused her domestic worker of sexually abusing her three-year-old daughter.
The post also revealed details about the case, including the age and nationality of the accused, who had not been charged due to a lack of evidence.
According to a police spokesperson, a 29-year-old Filipino maid had been arrested on April 25 after police received a report from a Hong Kong woman who lived in a residential apartment in Kowloon City earlier that day. The woman claimed the domestic worker had inappropriately touched her daughter which led to the child getting an infection.
However, a police investigation team made up of clinical psychologists and forensic pathologists did not find evidence of sexual abuse to constitute a formal charge. Police released the accused on May 20 and informed the woman who reported the case, the Oriental Daily reported.
Psychologists could not identify any signs of a sexual offense during interviews with the girl, who could not give a full, reliable account of the alleged crime, the Sing Tao Daily reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed source who followed the police investigation.
The girl’s mother then posted a message on Facebook, asking for suggestions about how to fight for the rights of her daughter. She said her domestic worker has filed for compensation against her to the Small Claims Tribunal. The mother claimed her case was not handled properly by police and aded she may seek help from legislators.
The case fueled a hot debate on social media over the past few days. Some people supported the mother, while others said the mother should have reported the case earlier. Some said the mother had wrongly blamed her maid.
After requests from the local media, police disclosed more details about the case on Monday.
Hongkong is best when it comes to Justice. I believe the trial always reveal the truth .
This is a lesson all moms should all learn when it comes to ur child. Always pay close attention everyday talk to ur child, act fast when things happen.take over ur maids hands when ur back from work. U already keep ur children in the hands of a stranger for more the 8hour, hope the child will recover.n lesson learned
Stranger you say!!! Lesson?? Why don’t just quit their work take care their kids so no need to hire a stranger in their house as u say in whichever way they treat their so called stranger maid helper will backfire
Lack of evidence..u didn’t read ? Hahhaha funny Ms Elizabeth..think first b4 u comment that huh!Bring ur kids to ur jobsite or u better stay home..wash dishes,laundry,clean ur dirt,stay close to ur kids…it’s really safe????????????????????
Des L Nabiong yes much better right.. No need to hire a maid.. What’s the use if you can’t learn to trust
Hands that rocks the cradle doesn’t mean she or he is part of the family,,for a helper to indulge as part of the family, takes 2 parties work that out n trust in each other n not compare with other families.before we cant judge the helper or the parent we weren’t in there,but pity the child n wish everyone can learn to understand before pointing fingers..lol
Yes what you said was true but isn’t suppose to be from the very beginning before hiring a helper you must think about a million times because when u start hiring a helper it means you are willing to let a stranger inside your house. You must learn how to trust.. Anyways you and I all of us have our own freedom of expression and belief..
Know your children because some child is so curious they touch and play there private part too.
And as the police say they bring child to the doctors and no evidence can support the mother allegations.
FYI lot of camera in her house.
Kung ayaw nyo ma abuse yang mga anak nyo kayo mag alaga ahah……
No need to hire helper just leave ur job and stay at home to take care ur child.
Comrade, onerism is banned in China. We have too many people who need glasses already.
The mom just got scared that’s understandable poor child she was into this at a very young age. But the morale of the maid was damaged. If i am the maid ill make them pay too. It’s not all about the money but for sure if they win the case they will also make the maid pay and worst be jailed
Strangers..?????wow,once u hire a helper…don’t ever ever think that is stranger…treat her like your own family…we can sacrifice our own life to save u once your in danger,and no amount of money the love and the care we give to your kids!,for us just give us proper meal and rest ang don’t treat us like sleave then everything will be fine.
Counter charge pls.sue that bitch for damaging your morals…dont get her get away with that for christ sake..
Take care your own children…or ask your money to do it for you dont hire maids if u cant trust at all…this makes my blood boil haha
That’s right! Coz most of the mom’s who got nannies they make nannies as a surrogate mother I mean thier replacement. In a kidding side be careful one day ur maid will replace u as ur husbands wife
