A 75-year-old man pleaded not guilty at West Kowloon Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday to indecently assaulting an Indonesian domestic worker.

The Indonesian worker, 26, identified as X at the trial, accused defendant Lei Hang-gong of massaging her breast for 10 to 15 minutes six times, while claiming that a massage could improve her body odor, Oriental Daily reported.

X was employed by the defendant’s daughter-in-law in 2017 to help the family of four, including the employer, her husband and two children in Mei Foo Sun Chuen in Mei Foo. Lei lived in another apartment in the same private housing cluster.

X told the court that her employer’s family was away for vacation in June in 2017.

The defendant went to her employer’s flat on June 16 and gave her a deodorant while claiming that his grandchildren complained about her body odor.

The defendant asked her to go to the piano room and instructed her to take off her clothes for an examination.

The defendant asked her to jump 20 times and raised her hands up before touching her armpits and breasts to see if she was sweating.

Then, the defendant massaged her breast, claiming that could help her solve the “body odor problem”.

X told the court the defendant threatened her, claiming if she did not improve her odor, her employer would fire her.

The defendant groped her breast that same night and on other four occasions over the next four days while his son’s family was away from Hong Kong.

On June 20, X used her mobile phone and taped the conservation secretly between her and the defendant before reporting the case to the police.

Asked by the magistrate why she did not refuse to allow the man to massage her breast, the woman said she was afraid she would lose her job – as she needed to support her family and to repay debts, Ming Pao Daily reported.

The trial continued on Wednesday.
