Filipina charged with infanticide over dumped baby

15 April 2016



A Filipina maid appeared in court yesterday, Apr 14, charged with infanticide after allegedly dumping the body of her newborn baby in a ladies’ toilet at a shopping mall in Tsuen Wan on Apr 2.
Aileen G., 37, appeared before Acting Principal Magistrate Cheang Kei-hong where the charges were read to her through a Tagalog interpreter.
The case was adjourned until May 12 pending further investigation.
The woman, who worked for a family in Tsuen Wan, was arrested on Tuesday after she asked the Consulate for help in surrendering to the police, according to Hermogenes Cayabyab Jr., an officer of the assistance to national section.
Police had been looking for the culprit using images from the mall's security camera, after the dead baby was found wrapped in plastic and stashed in a water closet in the ladies’ toilet of Chan Kee Plaza in Sham Tseng.
Cayabyab said the Filioina had admitted that the child’s father was an African. Her employer has since terminated her work contract.
Local newspapers citing investigators reported that the woman confessed to giving birth to a stillborn infant and dumping it the toilet.
The baby was found by a mall clerk on the night of Apr 4 after she looked for the source of a foul smell in the toilet. The infant was believed to have been dead for two days. Its placenta and umbilical cord were still intact.
