Maid faces ill-treatment charge

30 March 2017

A Filipina domestic helper accused of ill-treating her young ward appeared in Kowloon City Court on Mar 23, but was told to wait until May to face the charge.

Janice M. Buan went to the court at 9:30am accompanied by two volunteers from the Mission for Migrant Workers, and waited until past 11am for her turn.

But when Buan was called forward, the prosecutor applied for a six-week adjournment for legal advice and finalization of the video-recorded interview on the alleged victim. The prosecution was also still waiting for the medical report, the lawyer said.

Buan is facing a charge of “ill treatment or neglect by those in charge of a child or young person.”
No plea was taken and details of the case were not read in court.

Magistrate Peter Law adjourned the hearing to May 2, and extended Buan’s bail. – Vir B. Lumicao
