Pinay accused of forcibly feeding ward eyes bind-over deal

26 April 2019

The case is being heard in Kwun Tong court

A Filipina domestic helper who has been accused of willfully assaulting her 3-year-old ward may yet be allowed to settle her case by way of a bindover.

The prosecutor in the case of “willful assault” against Marlyn dela Cruz in Kwun Tong Court today (Apr 26) sought  a four-week adjournment of the hearing pending the Justice Department’s action on an application for a bound- over settlement.
Dela Cruz, who worked for a family in Tseung Kwan O, was arrested in early February after her employers complained that she allegedly jabbed a spoon into the mouth of her ward to force the child to eat.

The maid’s act, which happened on Feb 5, was seen by the child’s parents when they reviewed a CCTV footage at home. They reported to the police and Dela Cruz was arrested.
The Filipina has been terminated by her employer since and she now stays at the Consulate’s shelter.

The magistrate adjourned the case until May 24 and approved the defendant’s application for bail.

Under Section 27 of the Offenses Against the Person Ordinance,  it is an offense for someone taking care of a child under 16 years of age to commit an act that is likely to cause the young person unnecessary suffering or injury to health.
The words “unnecessary suffering or injury to health” includes injury that leads to loss of sight or hearing, injury to a limb or organ of the body, or mental derangement.
