A Filipina domestic worker will face trial in February after being accused of indecently assaulting her male employer in North Point on Hong Kong Island.

The defendant appeared at the Eastern Magistrates’ Court on December 4 after she was charged with one count of common assault and another count of indecent assault, reported.

According to the prosecution, the incident happened on June 30 inside an apartment on King’s Road in North Point, where the defendant allegedly indecently assaulted her “semi-paralyzed” male employer.

The prosecutor did not reveal the details of the case.

The trial was postponed after the defense lawyer asked for more time to review the defendant’s videotaped interview with police. The lawyer said he had received the official transcript of the interview only a day before the scheduled start of the trial.

The defendant had yet to enter her plea formally before the court.

Magistrate Veronica Heung Shuk-han rescheduled the trial for February 12 and 13.

The prosecution said it would present four witnesses, including the two interpreters who assisted in the police interview.
