A 25-year-old Filipina has filed a sexual harassment charge against her employer’s 72-year-old husband for allegedly forcing her to massage his penis on two occasions last month.

The first incident allegedly happened just two days after the young helper had arrived at her employer’s house in Pokfulam on Jun 21. The defendant repeated the act four days later, causing Maggie (not her real name), to flee.
With help from Antonio Villafuerte, officer-in-charge of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office, Maggie sought police help, but officers reportedly refused to book the elderly man for indecent assault because, accordingly, he did not use force or threat.

The police instead advised Maggie to file a complaint for sexual harassment with the Equal Opportunities Commission.
Maggie also filed a claim at the Labour Labour Relations Division on Jul 15 after no settlement was reached in an initial meeting between her and the employer’s family on Jul 7.

Villafuerte said the maid is seeking compensation for damages for the elderly man’s misdeed.

But the employer’s family was only willing to offer a month’s wage, another month’s pay in lieu of notice, air ticket and meal allowance.

“A conciliation meeting is set for Aug 2 at 2:30pm. After that, if no settlement is reached, the case will be elevated to the Labour Tribunal,” Villafuerte said.



Records show the Filipina arrived from Manila on Jun 21. Two days later, the suspect came home in the afternoon and took a shower, got out of the bathroom naked and asked the helper for a body massage.

The maid allegedly refused, saying it was illegal and not part of her work, but the man told her it would be just between the two of them.

Maggie obeyed out of fear until the man demanded that she massage his genitals. She rang up her employment agency afterwards, crying and begging to go home.

But the agency told her to wait and make a video recording the next time the man ordered her to massage him again.

On Jun 27, the elderly man asked for another massage that included his organ and the maid was able to get a video clip, albeit sloppy because she was nervous and scared.

She waited for a chance to escape and did so when she went out to dump the rubbish.

The next day, Maggie called up the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration to seek advice. She later met with Villafuerte who asked her to write down her complaint.
