02 August 2019

Kowloon City court
By Vir Lumicao An 11-year-old boy testified on Aug 1 against a Filipina domestic helper accused of ill-treating and indecently assaulting him. The alleged victim identified only as “X” was the first witness to be called after the trial got underway in Kowloon City court. He was first briefed by Magistrate Raymond Wong through a video chat in which he could only speak with the magistrate and the prosecution and defense lawyer. Thursday’s session, however, was mainly used to view two video recorded interviews in Cantonese of the boy by the prosecution on Nov 5, 2018 and Jan 3, 2019.

The defendant, Angela Vivo, who has denied three charges of ill-treatment and two of indecent assault on the boy, watched quietly as the video recorded interviews were played back on a big screen.

In the earlier video interviews when the boy was much younger, he looked bored and inattentive,shifting from side to side or curling up on his seat.
But the 11-year-old boy who was interviewed by Magistrate Wong looked serious and replied promptly as he was asked questions apparently meant to gauge his comprehension
Asked by the magistrate if he knew the difference between telling the truth and telling a lie, X said: “Telling the truth is telling facts, telling a lie is no one would believe you. “
The first count of ill-treatment against Vivo allegedly happened sometime in February 2016 near the Yaumatei Fire Station, the second in July of the same year in the boy’s house, and the third near the Mongkok Police Station on Sept 7 last year.

Vivo is also accused of indecently assaulting the boy in his home between 2016 and 2017, and again in 2018.
